I , West Norfolk. Dee. 7. 1S0S.
To the Common nnd Select Councils of
I the City of Norfolk:
? Gentlemen?Wo respectfully <<ull your
attention to the fact that u former
Council of your city by a deed dated
June ir.tb. ISM. leased to the Baltimore
Stenth Packet Company the West F,nd
of Main street, &c? for ten years. That
notion on the part of the Council was
much regret ted by our company, and
the Inhabitants of the lower harbor,
as greatly detrimental to the building
up of this harbor nnd the advance?
ment of Its commercial interests, and
while we are not aware of the exact
status of the present lease before you
by said company, we humbly pray that
your honorable bodies will bo guard the
growing interests of your city as not
to place beyond your control any prop?
erty adjoining the west end of Math
street Hint will prevent its proper
use for n ferry lo connect your city
witli the lower harbor. While we felt
the Impropriety of the nbovc lease
at the time, had we raised objections
then It might have been considered
premature, for Die development of the
lower hnrbor. nnd with It West Nor?
folk, wns more or less nn experiment,
nnd had my company claimed In so
short n period the prospect of ^.d
vrinolng the commercial Interests, of
this port more than the Haltlmore Steam
Packet Company, we frankly admit
your former Council could have ac?
cepted II with great doubt, but truth
Should now speak for Itself, and we
stand prepared lo prove that West
Norfolk alone, sny nothing of the other
parts of the lower harbor. Is dally
growing more In commercial Impor?
tance ti> your city than the Baltimore
Steam Packet Company. Our popula?
tion Is being drawn from abroad, nnd
nil dividends or earnings spent here.
We have no wish to underrate the Im?
portance of the Haltlmore Steam Pack?
et Company or any other company, and
while It is the duty of your city to fos?
ter nil worthy enterprises. It Is para?
mount to your growth as a city to
guard permanently the life blood of Its
So far ns we are Informed, every pro?
gressive city on deep wnter has faith?
fully guarded its ferry landings, and
we cannot believe that Norfolk. Just
entering n new life. Is to Vie the only ex?
ception. My company under its charter
has been operating a ferry between Nor?
folk and West Norfolk for five years, be
pinning with a small boat and few trips,
and adding to the size of boat and num?
ber of trips ns the service demanded,
until we nre now prepared to sny a bet?
ter boat and suitable landings is dally a
growing necessity. The passenger travel
from nothing, has grown to 40.000 per
year, saying nothing of freight, nnd
when you estlmnte the supply of four?
teen prosperous stores, Hie new build?
ings constantly added, with Its general
commercial Increase, and the lurge
trucking interest fostered by the pro?
moters of West Norfolk, it should claim
your careful consideration. Our people
I bnvo shown a preference to closely ally
their every Internst with your city;
I they have no wish to take from, but to
add to your wealth and population, and
; in their behalf we do not ask you to do
nate or lease us the end of Main street,
for we do not believe that power Is
vested In your body, hut we do ask your
hearty approval of allowing the west
end of Main street ns a public highway
to be extended by ferry to the lower
harbor under a reasonable guarnntv of
its faithful Performance. For your hon?
orable bodies to delay even for several
months In giving this subject a thorough
investigation, can do no great harm,
but to permanently, prevent the use of
this street for a close ferry alliance with
the lower harbor, in our opinion, would
thrust a dagger In the very heart of
your progress and entail endless litiga?
tion. "Self preservation Is the first law
of nature." and If Norfolk Is ever to
extend its domain to cover territory
within four miles of its City Hall, mak?
ing West Norfolk a part of Greater Nor?
folk, noi? Is the time to begin this
movement by guarding Us water com?
munications and extending to the thrifty
young tot*i of West Norfolk a Btrlctly
business and commercial greeting.
Very respectfully.

provement Company.
