Herewith I have the honor to enclose to you my Account Current, and other papers, for the 3d quarter 1851.
I would respectfully report that the roof of the Qr. Mr. & Com.y store house is in a very leaky condition. I have made enquiry and find that the expense of a double coat of paint and sand, over the whole roof, would amount to one hundred & six dollars.
Some time since I forwarded to the Qr. Mr. Gen. the proceedings of a Board of Survey condemning forty five stoves on hand at this post, and requested permission to dispose of them and purchase new ones with the proceeds. I would respectfully renew the request.
