Sir

the mail to day, and found that the account &c Secretary A. W. Babbitt & Feramorz Little is nearly completed On examining the contract together with the drawings it is quite plain that the said Little has done much more than to fill his contract. It is clear there was a mistake in staking out the walls; they should have been staked out 8 by 10 rods, but were staked out 10 by 14 rods thereby adding 10 rods of Extra width [?] as per following bill
Excavating 117 1/3 Yards @ at 50 cts per yard 55.20
120 Perch of Stone 390.00
25,244 Adobies @ .70 684.00
Lumber, Nails &c, & Carpenter work 98.00
$ 1, [?]08.[?]

The outer corral is up together with the basement walls of House. I estimate them at $500.00
