Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 25, 1902
To the Honorable Mayor and City Council of the City of Fort Worth:
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Wheeler Street, call your attention to that portion of Wheeler Street lying between Daggett Avenue and Peter Smith Street.; said Wheeler Street being at this date almost impassible to teams and entirely so to pedestrians. We would call your attention to the fact that all the water coming down Peter Smith Street flows north down Wheeler, to Broadway; likewise water coming down Daggett Avenue flows south on Wheeler to Broadway. We therefore ask that this street be graded and a gutter constructed to cross Wheeler Street on Broadway, sufficient to carry the waters meeting at this point across the street and down the gutter on Broadway to a natural outlet two blocks east of Wheeler street. We call your attention to this at once and ask that our petition be complied with.
