|remaining for building Rotunda||50,754.34|
Th: J. to mr Brockenbrough.
The above is a true Estimate, I think, for the year 23. shewing that at the end of that year (all debts and expences to that day paid) we should have had remaining for the Rotunda 50,754.34 to which sum we must restrain expenditures on that building, in order that the whole annuity of 24. may be in hand, clear of all former demands to meet the expences of 24.
In my former statement I had taken into account the surplus of the annuity of 22. (interest off) 7800.D. without observing that that had already entered into mr Dawson’s account, which included every thing to Oct. 7. 22.
On analysing your acct of payments from Oct. 1. to Dec. 31. 23 I find
|For garden walls and other finishings for the 4. rows||1312.||99|
|For currt expences||of 23. to wit, officers, laborers, provns, taxes Etc||882.||51½|
|For do||of 24.||317.||50|
|For the Rotunda||7253.||92|
and I think you said there were about 100.D. still due for garden walls Etc
P.S. I must ask the favor of 800 bricks more
