November 16, 1936



The most Rev. Patrick Barry, D. D.,
Bishop of St. Augustine,
St. Augustine, Florida



His Excellency:-

You no doubt have noticed some of
the editorials and newspaper comment that is being
given throughout the country to the proposed preser-
vation and restoration of St. Augustine. Several
broadcasting stations have spoken of it over the
air. The necessary amount of two thousand dollars,
pledged to show good faith that the local people
are interested in the proposed project, has been
pledged.

The next move will be made by Dr.
John Merriam, President of the Carnegie Institution
of Washington, D. C. He will announce the two
committees who will start a study with a view of
making a final recommendation of what work should
be undertaken.

It has occurred to me that the old
Arsenal, now headquarters for the State troops of
Florida under Adjutant General, might be restored

to its former condition when it was used by the
Catholic Church. Although this is outside of the
area under consideration to be restored and preserved
I believe it has sufficient historic value to warrant
its consideration. It is possible this might be
restored and returned to your church in order that it
might serve some definite purpose under the influence
of the Catholic Church.

Should you be interested in this I shall
be glad to meet with you there or at my office here
and discuss this matter at your convenience.
