To repair the Steward's Hall it will require to be newly weather boarded and shingled and most of the window, frames, sash and doors new also — the Frame of the House is in good condition.
The Out Buildings consist of kitchen, Poultry House, Smoke House, and Negro House which can be put in keeping with the Hall by making small repair.
The probable cost of repairs, including painting the Hall and white washing the Out Buildings, say eight hundred dollars.
The above is respectfully submitted to the Board of Trustees
