Dear Sir:

I have received your letter, File #1634, Cat. #713, stating that my property is to be sold. I have thought over this matter very seriously and came to the conclusion that I will not sell the property. Being evacuated out here and living a poor life, that property is the only thing we have to look forward to. I will appreciate it very much if you would inform this buyer that my property is not for sale.

Yours truly,

(Signed) “S. Odagaki”
