Henry Pollack Trunk Company
The property described in the said original petition is urban; there is situate thereupon a residence; said
residence is old, having been built a good many years ago; it has become badly out of repair, and unless
repaired will become so deteriorated, decayed and out of repair as to become valueless and untenantable.
Plaintiff now shows that she is without any income whatever, and that she is absolutely without any
means whereby she can repair, improve and preserve the said house, nor is she able in any wise to acquire
the necessary funds to repair, maintain and preserve the said house, and that defendant, Sam Pollack, the
owner of the reversion, is a minor and is without any legal guardian and is without any legal funds,
wherewith to make the necessary repairs, and that If the said house shall be permitted to continue to decay,
dilapidate and go, ruin value of the lot upon which it is situated will, be greatly impaired and diminished.
Plaintiff further shows that the fencing is down and dangerous and that she has been notified by the City
engineer of the City of Dallas that she must repair same at once and that she is powerless to do so.
Plaintiff therefore shows that an imperative necessity exists for a partition, in that should
commissioners be appointed they must necessarily report that the property is incapable of partition and
therefore a sale will be ordered, and that said premises in their present condition can now be sold to
advantage and the proceeds be divided between petitioner and defendant Sam Pollack in accordance with
their respective interests, as established by life and other tables with reference thereto; but that if said
property continues to become more and more dilapidated, as it unavoidably will unless repaired, the value
thereof will be lost both to plaintiff and to the said Sam Pollack, and the right of occupancy of plaintiff will
be rendered practically valueless if not entirely destroyed.
Wherefore, premises considered, plaintiff prays as in her original petition, and as etc.
