MODERN WOODMEN OF AMERICAN STATE OF TEXAS WM. R. GRANT, DISTRICT DEPUTY 17 pOWELL BLDG. FORTWORTH, TEX Oct. 28th., 1907.

The Hon. the Mayor and Board of Commissioners, Fort Worth, Texas.

Sirs:--

Noting the desire of our city executives that an emergency water supply be provided for the city, witout having seen location of proposed Parker County surface re-servoir as explained at lenght in Sunday's papers, I offer to the point out a possiable location of a water fall within twenty miles of Fort Worth, which, at little cost would furnish not only all the emergency water this city will ever need but also motive power for Fort Worth and many other cities.

Respectfully submitted, [M. Gaul] ex-Engineer, Anglo-Egyptian Dredging Co. and Euorpean Commission of the Danube.

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

We, the undersigned, citizens and residents 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 Jennings Avenue.

This is a great inconvenience and hardship to the many who are required to use Myrtle Avenue,and they would most respectfully suggest to your Honorable Body that if the South line of Myrtle Avenue b etween the t wo saidpoints were widened ten(10) feet it would give the people a passable thoroughfare and enable them to drive over and through the same in some degree of ease and safety.

Your petitioneres are informed that this ten feet to which they refer belongs to J.E.Johnson subject to a mort-
