Transfer folio also contains previous 2 indentures. The more recent transfer, dated 1890-07-04, includes the sale of the property from Harry J. Levine to Thomas Skinner, for a consideration of $1311.27. The second (earlier) indenture, dated 1890-03-01, includes the sale of the property from Peter Cordiner to Harry J. Levine and Thomas Skinner, for a consideration of $1000.
In transfer folio, on abstract of title, The Custodian of Enemy Property is noted as owner by Vesting Order (filing numbers 35591 and 49307 given), dated 1942-12-29 and 1948-11-12. A title of 205885L is also noted.
Trace application 205885L was investigated, and was followed by traces 205886L and 205887L. These transfers follow the same progression of title as 227696L, 227697L, and 227698L, respectively (but earlier, in 1948) - however, their title documents are cancelled. It appears the same transfer of ownership was attempted in the second year. The Custodian of Enemy Property is not on any transfer document as a seller or owner, but is Vested in the Custodian on transfer 205885L, and also claims the Temple is without the proper documentation for registration (and registration is rejected). Rejection occurred because: Proof of Incorporation and Articles of Association of Grantee Society are missing, a Declaration of Trust is required for 205887L, and the Right to Purchase 98817L is noted as indisposed of. The notice applies to 205885L-7L. In another letter from the Temple's lawyer (A.D. Wilson, plus institution, Wilson & White, 920 Stock Exchange Building) claims to have the necessary documents, except the "Resolution of the Committee of the Hompa Buddhist Temple". A lawyer, "Mr. Locke", is noted as a solicitor for the Custodian and in search of this document.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
