Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Munroe, 15 July 1804

July 15. 04.

Th: Jefferson to mr Munroe

I have this day made a tolerably exact estimate of the digging already done at the President’s house, & that which remains to be done, for the lead drains from each end of the house, and the main sewer.

there is done 1000. cub. yards. digging at 18 C = 180.D carrying away @ [. . .] C = [. . .] D [. . .]
yet to be done 900. 162.. [. . .] [. . .]
1900. 342 [. . .] = [. . .]
you will judge whether it will be best to go on with the digging & banking in the present way or to hire it by the Cubic yard. the hauling I presume can only be done by day work.
