Description
Letter from Leo K. Suzuki, presumably a tenant of Paul Hagime Sakawye. Suzuki conveys his inability to pay the $320 rent balance requested by the company-- see Item csudh_rsp_1510 for the referenced letter. He cites oil company damage to his land and an insufficient amount received for the damages to his crops. He also references additional oil company activity on the land he grows lima beans disallowing him to use the land to full capacity. He advises the company of his intent to call about the matter and to "fix-up" his acreage for the coming year.
