Memo tos Bradley G. Brewer
From Robert H. Steinbach
Subjects Proposed Addition to American Legion Building

In reference to the proposed kitchen addition to the American
Legion Building, I have made a quick comparison of the Rocque map
(1788) and the official map of St. Augustine (1923) and have com-
pared my findings with that of W. L. J.
There is considerable disagreement between the two, The
major discrepancy is in the length of the block. W. L. J.'s report
gives a length of 240 feet. The official 1923 map gives a length
of 259.8 feet. 'he Rocque map scales 79 Spanish varas which con-
verts to 22I,20 feet, a shortage of 38.6 feet. Based on this,
there might be loov for :~ocque #133 in the north west corner of the
lot. Since it was a masonry structure, a few exploratory trenches
should confirm the location. The other buildings shown on ,. L. J.'s
plot plan would -'all on the property to the lorth.

Notes Actual measurement of the block 260 feet 7 inches
North 3outh iieasurement of lot- 72 feet -11 inches
Distances from property line to
existing building North end 18 feet 6 inches
South end 16 feet 0 inches
Theoretically possible to put Rocque #133 in this area.
