The following report, which the writer most respectfully submits to the Faculty of the Graduate School of the Massachusetts Agricultural College as a thesis for the degree of Master of Science, constitutes a statement of a piece of work representing the writer's design for the development of a large tract of land located immediately outside of Richmond, Virginia, and owned by the Lewis Ginter Land and Improvement Company. The paper, which assumes the form of a report, will be submitted to the Lewis Ginter Land and Improvement Company as a practical and feasible plan for the development of this property. It is the intention of the Lewis Ginter Land and Improvement Company to develop this tract of land some time within the near future, and the problem was kindly suggested to the writer by a member of that corporation.
