Fort Worth, Texas,Oct. 18,1907.

To the Honorable Mayor & Board of Commissioners of
the City of Fort Worth:-

We, the undersigned, citizens and res-
idents of the City of Fort Worth , residing in the vicinity
of Jennings Avenue and Myrtle Street,and owning property in
that vicinity,would respectfully petition your Honorable Body
to widen Myrtle Street ten (10) eleven (11) feet from the point where it
intersects with the West line of Jennings going East to the
point where it again instersects the West line of said Jen-

admits of two teams driving abreast,and when big teams are
driven across there,one or the other must drive into the
gutter and wait until the other passes by. This is a great
inconvenience and hardship to the many who are required to
use Myrtle Avenue,and they would most respectfully sug-

Avenue b etween the t wo saidpoints were widened ten(10) feet

them to drive over and through the same in some degree of ease
and safety.

Your petitioneres are informed that this ten feet to
