Wm.T.Cotter Esq Architect
Sanford Fla
Dear Mr.Cotter


I am very much worried about the
s. matter of the Cathedral.I did think when I wrote that
$70,000 dollars was a very large price for the Cathedral
but I did not know that this included sewer,side walk,
S furniture changes from pine to Oak and other items which
n. were not included in the original planand have added so
S much to its cost.
Dressed I I supposed that the tile roof did not cost more than
$1000,00.Of course I thought that my opinion would not
toorder. ,; 'have much weight as I was not on the ground and could not
S therefore judge of the difficulties you may have hadand
's. I did not know that the sewer and side-walks,railing and
S w6rk on the Bishop's residence were included in the
ails. $7 ,000.dollars ,and I think Father Luckeshould have
stated this to me.I have written to Bishop Mooreputting
osts. the-matter right and am sorry that it has given you any
worry .It has worried me a great deal .
and buri-, With regard to working drawings of pulpit ,architects are
allowed to charge IO % and upwards for plans and working
Purnitue. drawings of furniture .
I suppose land a half % or $6or $7,oo dollars was enough
Finish. to pay for -he draughtsmen's wages in drawing it out as it
was not very elaborate but I may have been mistaken -and
cts'esiOns if you had not offered to draw it I coUld have sent it to
New York'.However it does .not amount to much and if I was
Executed wrong I am very sorry for 6t,with kind regards
I am sincerely Yours
( Signed) James Renwick
