OFFICE OF W.J. GILVIN, City Assessor and Collector.

Fort Worth, Texas, 12/31 1903

To the Hon Mayor and Members of Finance Committee of City Council

Ft Worth, Texas,

Gentlemen: Attached you will find statement of the assessment of lots 1 & 4 Block 95 City and the amount as changed by the Board of Equalization

The undersigned hereby petitions your honorable body for a reduction of the N 55ft of lot 4 from $2100 to $1600 for the following reason.

1st. The change was made by the Board of Equalization without any knowledge on my part and and my place which cost me $1900 was first at $2100 while the place wouth of me (s42 ft of 4) was put at $1900- and which place cost the owner $2500_ and is worth at least $600 more than mine.

2nd. My place is not worth more than $1900, renting for only $13.00 per month and 8% of this amount being only $1600. I would gladly take less than $2100 for my place

Respectfully HHoffman
