538 Washington St.

Dear Sirs,

We are living on the top floot at the above number. It is terrible with the water can't get any untill late in the afternoon and then not properly. I have to go to the expense of giving my washing out on account of it. Hoping that something will be done soon. I remain

Yours respecfully,
(Miss) Greene
