Rikizo Yoneyama: Belonging


July 4, 1944.

Mr. Rikizo Yoneyama,
Registration No. 13610,
Sub. P. O. No. 9,
Edmonton, Alberta.

Dear Sir:

We are in receipt of your letter of June 21st.

Your remarks have been carefully read and we can appreciate that the disposal of your property will be a matter of personal concern. However, the sale of properties to the Director, The Veterans’ Land Act was carried out as a part of a policy of liquidation outlined by Ottawa on the basis of appraised values.

Your letter has been placed in our files so that your comments in regard to this sale will remain on record but we can only advise you that we are unable to consider any alternative in regard to this matter.

Yours truly,

W E Anderson,
Farm Department
