To tae Hoaoralda Board of Super visors of Kent Couaty: Gentlemea In the matter of the tax cf 1 11? ia the Third ward of the city of G.aad Bapidsoa a lot 11 and 3 feet aorta aad souta by 50 fett east and w?t m northeast, corner cf J of aa;d lol and house, block 2, Withey's addit.oa, abased to Geirit Folder man; I ilr.d oppo.te said description the word "poor" written, and think the m teat of the superv;-or was to exempt said description from the said year' Ui; however, he failed to exempt eaid property, a Le extended the regular amount of tax opposite said descrip tion, and as the tame wa.s not pud it was the duty of the collector to return it unpaid, which he did. The property has eiace ben sold and deeded to M. J. Kolts, and the time of redemption has expired. Therefore, if you desire to relieve a id Foldermaa from said tajr, I think it would be necessary to reas at large oa said ward sum sufficient to satisfy said M. J. Kolu for h.j claim.
