The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor
City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your reply to my letter of July
ninth. I appreciate your offer to have your Building
Inspector look at the property described below, but I
can tell you exactly what he will find -- three dere-
lict old duplex dwellings, all empty except one unit
gccupied by Willie Brooks at number 264, who has flo-

wers and vegetables growing in his yard.

The property recorded as 254- 256, 258- 260,
and 264-266 Clifton Place N.E. was originally owned
by my grandmother, willed to an aunt, and subsequently
came into my possession in late 1966, after having been
administered by a bank since June of 1962. During the
bank's administration The Housing Authority indicated
that area was to be condemned, so the bank made no re-
pairs, and the tenants moved off. When the property
came into my hands it had become a slum.

I would like to rebuild, but I do not know
what is my status. Do I own the property, or does The
Housing Authority? And if The Housing Authority has
jurisdiction over it, why cannot that agency pay the
taxes ?

Eagerly awaiting an answer, I am
Very truly yours,

Rie A bate e Lt) ate.

Mrs. Henry H, Ware Jr.
