Abstract

Mr. J. B. Everett, the contractor who erected the walls in my Laboratory buildings has brought on a suit for [51,000] extra brick which he claims wre put in the foundation walls, owing to it being necessary to go deeper down than anticipaged when the plans were made in order to create a good bottom.##I understood from Mr. Everrett at the time the brick was laid you were in charge of the work.##Mr. Taft, who later on inspected the work, has given Mr. Everett a certificate for about 26,000 extra bricks and [I want] this latter number to be a [final] computation [referring to a ----- number].##Mr Everett is [------] in his claim and I wish to do him justice at the same time having no desire to pay for a larger number of bricks than was actually used.##Have you any records which will enable you to advise me in the matter.
