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 comparat-
ively direct line, over an easy grade, the lake and the bay. Indif-
erence 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 prop-
erty 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
