To the Hon. The City Council of Seattle

Gentlemen,

The late City Government entered into an agreement with Messrs. Peterson and Christenson for the building of two scows at Lake Washington, the original plans of which were later amended and the City thus rendered liable for delay and material.

The Board of Public Works have made a settlement with Messrs. Peterson and Christenson, whereby the sum of #1350- is to be paid by the City for one scow, now completed, and the material so far as ordered for the second scow is taken off the hands of the contrators at cost price to them.

The material consists of lumber which

has been measured up by the Supt. of B. Br. W. and in value amounts to $443.52 and can be utilized to advantage - The total amt. to be paid by the City, therefore, is $1350- plus $443.52 Equalling $1783.52

As the contractors are men of small means and as the bills contracted on this work are yet unpaid, caused by the unsettled condition in which the matter for some time has existed, it is considered very desirable to make an immediate payment in settlement of the contractors bills as now adjusted, and the claims awaiting satisfaction.

We therefore request that a special appropriation be made by your Hon. Body of $1783.52 for the prompt settlement desired.

Respy',
