Letter from Arthur Goodwin to Mrs. Patterson regarding her complaints about flower vendors outside her shop, November 30, 1927
Letter from Arthur Goodwin to Mrs. Patterson responding to her complaints that the flower vendors outside her shop at Pike Place Market are harming her business. Goodwin dismisses her complaint stating that he can see no way that the vendors are interferring with her business and there must be some other cause if it is suffering. Goodwin states 'We have done everything possible ourselves to assist you; your rent is not exhorbitant and we feel that we can do nothing further to assist you. We hope, however, that you will be able to build a business in this location, as it has enjoyed a good patronage for many years past.'
