Seattle, Wash March 28th 1890 To His Honor the Mayor & Councillors of the City of Seattle, County of KingGentlemen, I would respectfully call the attention of your Honorable Body to the great discrepancy in the valuation oflots in this vicinity. My lot Nos 7, 8, & 9, & 10 Block 29 Heirs of S A Bell addition are valued at the high [?] of eight hundred dollars each while other lots, contiguous tomine are only valued at from Four Hundred & Fifty, and Five hundred dollars each. The assessor promised to arrange this matter for me, but I presume he has been too busy - I would respectfully ask your honorable body to please reduce the assessment valuation of there lots so as to conform with those around my property. The grading of Ninth, Olive & Pine Streets will prove a hardship to me on account ofthe unequal assessmentI paid my taxes on this property under protestHoping you will kindly arrange this matter forme I am Very Respy Yours B B Freed
