Your two favors of the 28 h and 29 h have both followd me to Richmond where I am endeavouring to get my family and effects up to the University as soon as possible— nothing but the rivers being almost dry and the great scarcity of Waggons has prevented my being fixed up there in some way or other, (for M r Perry has not yet given up the house)— I shall this evening write up to
I arrived here on the 25 h with my family and as M r Perry will not give up the house yet I am under the necessity of boarding them at M r Laport s untill I can get possession, it is attended with considr considerable inconvenience and expence— I this evening received your letter of the 17 th with the enclosures—
I have this moment rec d your two favors of the 29 t & 1 st as I was disappointed in geting a pump borer. I set our over seer & hands at and have actually gotten some hundred feet pored, but a new difficulty has arisen the spring that was said to be so good has almost entirely dried up, we must therefore get water before we employ M r Wade—I have had M r Perrys improvements valued he now...
M r Nelson has come over to do the work of Pavilion N o 5– Before I knew it was your and General Cockes intention that M r Nelson should h ave Pavilion 5, I had made an arrangement with a young man to do a part of the work and he has gone on to collect materials and prepare for the making the window frames for the Cellar & first story, the only part except the first floor of Joists, and the...
I have procured you a pint of Oil of our painters, if you have any of the other plans of the Hotels drawn you will oblige by sending them, as it is important the timber should be cut for them as soon as possible, Hotel A on account of the flat roof being so large, will be difficult for that reason I believe I shall give it to Oldham the others being smaller & consequently less difficult in the...
I am sorry I was out of place yesterday when you were here, as I wished to see and take your, wishes & opinion on several subjects, Viz. 1 st On the propriety of substituting tin gutters for Wood over the Dormitories & Flat roofed Pavilions — it takes 26 Feet of gutter to go over the dormitory & that at about 25 cents p r foot for Materials & workmanship will cost $6.50 for each gutter— a box...
You are under a mistake as to any remittances being made to M r Vaughan in September last for the two M r Raggis, our funds were at so low a state at that time the remittance of 300D. could not be made, no remittance was made untill Feb: & that for $400– by yourself I have never had any correspondence with M r Vaughan on the subject, the $400 in Feb: as I understand was to bring in the wives...
I must ask the favor of you to permit us to advance the Eastern range of Hotels & Dormitories about 17 feet—in order to save much labor in diging & removing earth, we shall still have the same front, & the earth from the back of the dormitories & Hotels will be sufficient to widen the street to its proper width & the assent to the back of the pavilions will also be a little more moderate, the...
I must beg leave to suggest some few alterations in the arcade in front of Hotel A without altering the height of the building, as the span of the arch is 6 feet and the arches in front of the adjoining dormitories are only 5. F. 4 I it requires 4 inches more height for the arcade in front of the Hotel than those in front of the dormitores, I think it will look better to let the entablature of...
Enclosed you will find my duplicate reports in the first report I had made an error in the addition, it should have been $59.158.81. instead of $49.158.81 in consequence of that error I have varied the form of report, but making the balance required to complete the buildings nearly the same, I hope it will make no difference in the report made by the visitors you will find I have layed on 25 P...
