Twentieth street Whut a
Una lo Say About
Cairo, July 11, 11G
Editor Bi li.i.tix : I write to call at
tention to the condition of Twentieth
street bet ween Washington avenue and
Poplar street. 1 have been a resident of
Cairo since 1S54, and in that year built
my property on Twentieth street. 1 have
several time repaired this street at my
own expense, and believe the city should
now do something toward placing it iu
Kuch condition as to render it passable at
all reasons of the year. This can
be done, if done now, at a
very light expense ; but if the
work is delayed until the rainy, wet
weather comes on, it would cot three
time as much as to do the work now.
In its present condition, in wet weather,
large pools' ot water stand on the street,
and it requires weeks for them to dry up.
Stagnant pools of water stand on several
lots fronting on this street, giving out an
unhealthy and disease-breeding odor.
The drainage along Twentieth street is
bad, but could be remedied at but a slight
cost. When I built my house I put it to
the grade established by the city, but
since then the grade lias been changed
and Ihe sidewalk lowered, leaving the
steps of that portion ot my house in
which I do business nearly two feet above
Now, Mr. Editor, 1 call attention to
these matters in the hope that the city
will do w hat it can in allbrd me, as well
as the other residents on Twentieth street,
some sort ot relict. I pay a large amount
of taxes yearly, and have done so w ithout
giv.mblitig, but have received nothing in
return. At certain seasons of the year in
the transaction ot my daily routine ol
business I lind it ditlieult to get to and
Iroin my properly. The city is making
improvements on other streets of the city,
and why not give Us a share of the money
expended in this business on Twentieth
street, and about Ihe court house; I
think we have a right to expect it, and
ought to have it.
