Dear Mr. Newton,
I received your special delivery letter asking clarification of materials
and thidckest of ss for the paved areas of the Hispanic Oarden. I have
not had a reply fro Mr. Monies to aw recent letter, so I telephone Mrs.
Hazel Dunlap who is going to order all materials to see if she had received
atq tiforaatioi. She had talked wit Mr. Monies an samples af the alump
brick for the edging will be sent for approval. Mrs. Dunlap also informed
me that %the paved area could now be paved vith coquina due to a recuib
donation, I niQ;geb a t'liv-es3 of -Wo inches, I do not know tte 'vaiLa-
tions in surface ar.-aos however feel -te aizss suggested would give a
1'-04 x 2'*-0 x 2*
1'-0* x 1*-6" x A*
10 x r1-0" x 2"
The Tavin7 block for the border of tie coquina pavement, both on the entrance
edges and that flus wh wit the coqina paving around the raised octogon pebble
mosaic, can be constructed with a charcoal (medii to dark) colorx sliamp
brick 20 x h* x 8' obtainable from Sydney Monies. Tie paving block for the
edging of the rAsed octogon paving shall be x A z 8" slump brick colored
in the same charcoal shade and frao the same source.
The paving of the octogon aall have exposed aggregates of egg stse Ol, to
U') in a light color (off-white to beige) and is obtainable frc. Mr. P. D.
Shoewakr, 132; Cassatt Avense, Jacksonoille, Florida. Five cubic yards are
neledtl and will be set into 2s thickness of concrete. Mrs. Duralap will also
place this order, unless other arrangement are made. The method of placing
this exposed agrega&a paving is explained in the enclosed folder aid can be
txrther discussed with Mr. Willia Hollma of the fortland Gmlent Acsoiation
The pond shall have a bottom of exposed 1i beige aggregate (I on. yd. arA also
obtainable fro ShMoaker's), walls of pond and outside wall of the planter
shall have o@quina surfaces 20 thickness. The pool should be in a monolithic
pour to prevent leakage and should be constructed as shown on the cross-eectico
detail. Field conditions my vary this slightly.
The "aS Scroll desi In will have to be hand-laid, after the exposed aggrgate
surface is laid. Provisions to for this design and leave apace for the
