The Board of Aldermen beg leave to tender to you their most cordial esteem, and consideration, as we learn with profound regret that by reason of not being notified some of your members were unable to be present at a meeting of the railroad committee of the Board of Aldermen recently held. We desire to inform you that every effort was made to notify every member of the city council including also every executive officer of the cit. The time was limited to notify all of the above named persons, yet the city clerk did his duty so efficiently, that nearly every member of the city government was present, and that their presence was most pleasing to the members of the Railroad committee of this board. We learn with pleasure that the judiciary committee of your body has been empowered to act in matters concerning railroads that came before you for consideration, and invite any or all of your members to be present at any or all committee meetings of the board that may be held. We have heretofore endeavored to have every person present at every meeting of any of our committees that would be able to assist us to arrive at a proper solution on every matter that may come before any of our committees. We feel that the members of the House of Delegates can materialy assist us therefore we most respectfully invite you to attend all of our meetings of committees.
