Monthly Report of the Superintendent of Construction

November, 1865

No copy made


Report for November

Before the building can be used for its intended purpose, it is necessary to grade the streets around the site, and put in gutters, curbstones and foot pavements and the whole site enclosed within a substantial fence, within which proper outbuildings etc. should be erected and the grounds graded and put in perfect order.

The grading of the site has been completed, the plastering of the interior has been entirely finished while good progress has been made in the carpenters work of the interior and in the stonework of the exterior steps of the North side.

Believing it to be of the best interests of the government that workmen should be employed on the building until appropriations are made for accomplishing the above and the work thereon commenced, less progress has been made on the building than would have otherwise been done.
