Abstract:

A letter, 1851 December 3, James thanks an unnamed architect who is proposing to build him a house. After discussing details of vestibule and hall James says "Every one here with whom I have spoken, assures me that the filling up with soft brick will not answer in this place, as from some defect in the manufacture or material, for many miles around, the brick buldings have always proved damp." Therefore he proposes to use hemlock boards which he can "furnishƯ myself at the rate of ten dollars per thousand feet." He is "exceedingly anxious to know what length it would be advisable to cut my pine and hemlock timber, as I have now about a hundred and fifty thousand feet felled."
