Mar. 2, 1860,

Hon. Wm. A. Graham

Dear Sir,

Enclosed I send you a plan of a Belfry, drawn by Mr. Coates, which he says, can be carried out on the top of the South Building . He has examined the 4th Story &c & gives it as his opinion that the Bell can be placed there without endangering the walls. The cost will be about $1050, while a suitable Belfry on the ground, according to his estimate will cost from $1200 to $1300.— The Faculty (with the exception of Gov. Swain ) have, by vote, recommended that the Bell be placed on the top of the S. B.

But as the expenditure for this object exceeds the limits contemplated by the Building Committee, when they directed that the Bell should be suspended in a proper place in the Campus, I have referred the subject to you for instructions.

Yours Very Respectfully

M. Fetter.
