On the written demand of a non-resident owner of real property included in such tax roll, and the payment by such owner to the collector of the sum of twenty-five cents, the collector shall within twenty-four hours after the receipt of such demand mail in a postpaid envelope directed to such non-resident owner, to the orders to be furnished in such demand, a statement of the amount of taxes assessed against such property with a notice of the dates and places fixed by him for receiving taxes.
