"ANACORTES AMERICAN" BY DOUGLASS ALLMOND AMERICAN BUILDING, ANACORTES, WASHINGTON

Oct. 27, 1892

T. N. Haller Seattle

Dear Sir--Replying to your 25". I may not understand clearly the Lake avenue matter, but so far as I can see, closing same would be detriment to North Seattle property. If the avenue should go to abutting property owners, it is true that it would give me title to considerable property. Yet I believe the avenue is the only highway that connects in a comparatively direct line, over an easy grade, the lake and the bay. Indiference or stupidity on the part of North Seattle property owners is the main cause why such a highway has never been thrown open to the public. It is merely my individual opinion, and I confess that I am not familiar with the circumstances of circulating the petition, yet I believe that by grading the avenue and later condemning the obstructing block, our property as well as the interests of the public at large would be benefitted more than by closing the avenue. Viewing it in this light, I ask that my name be stricken from the petition.

Very truly, Douglass Allmond

To the Honorable City Council of the City of Seattle:

The undersigned, being the owners of all the property abutting on Lake Avenue, between John Street and Mercer Street, hereby petition and pray your Honorable Body to vacate that portion of Lake Avenue between John Street and Mercer Street.

The reason for said vacation is that said street does not conform to the other streets in said vicinity but runs diagonally across the same, and is of no practical benefit or utility to the City.

And your petitioners will ever pray.

To the Honorable the Mayor and Common Council of the City of Seattle Gentlemen!-- Whereas, There was presented to your honorable body on Jan. 24th 1893, a petition praying that Lake Avenue be vacated from John Street to Mercer Street, which petition alleges as a reason for said vacation that Lake Avenue was diagonally to the streets already laid out in that district. Now, Therefore, we, the undersigned owners of property abutting on and adjacent to Lake Avenue, do hereby emphatically protest against the vacation of said Avenue, for the following reasons:-- 1.-- The avenue running as it does diagonally from the Bay to the Lake Union, instead of being a detriment, is in our opinion, a great public convenience as it affords the only direct route from the Bay to the Lake (as will be more readily seen by reference to the map of the City) and will, when graded, establish one of the finest drives in Seattle, The Avenue being eighty feet wide, of comparatively easy grade, and
