I have been asked what special public improvements are desirable in Baltimore.
A City, like any business corporation[,] must make improvements, it cannot stand still, otherwise it will go backwards. Geographical position will do a great deal, but the competition between the great Cities of the Atlantic Seaboard not only for trade and commerce, but also for attractions as residential localities compel it[,] I might say[,] to keep abreast with the times.
