T Munroe presents his best respects to the President—
Immediately after receiving the Presidents note yesterday T.M. examined the wooden building at the corner of 15th & G streets, near the Treasury, and found on enquiry that it had lately been removed from the back part to the front of the lot on which it stands—that it was built many years ago, and that the only alteration making is the taking off from the front the broad rough planks with which it has heretofore been enclosed, & putting on in their stead the usual kind of narrow dressed boards used in neatly built wooden Houses—. As neither the frame nor size of this building has been changed TM does not suppose it would be deemed an infraction of the proclamation If however the President should think otherwise TM will immediately apply to one of the Judges for an injunction—
