Francis George


John Muir


Valona May 29th 1901 Mr. John Muir Dear Sir, The Property owners on the east side of town from 3rd Ave & Lillian St wants to have permission to put in an 8” sewer down Lillian St to the fence line of the Edwards ranch & across block 7 & 8 to the main sewer, as to put the sewer down 3rd Ave would cost twice as much & it would not be as good on account of the side hill, & some places it would not be deep enough in case a wagon road was cut which will be. The cost will be about $16.00 per lot and you will have to pay for 8 lots. Will you allow them to go over said blocks. They are to put in A.y. for each lot. Please let me know at once. And Oblige Yours Truly Francis George.


Valona, [California]
