Mr. Bradley Gwinn Brewer, Director
St. Augustine Historical Restoration
and Preservation Commission
46 St. George Street
St. Augustine, Florida 32084

Dear Mr. Brewer:

A note to say how I enjoyed our meeting in San Francisco and the interesting
discussion of your preservation work. Also, I would like this letter to serve
as a formal expression ef my interest in being considered for the position of
architectural consultant to the St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Pre-
servation Commission for the restoration of the Governor's House.

Enclosed is a resume of my historically oriented architectural activities, and
a copy of one annual Restoration Issue of Skylines magazine. I originated
this annual issue and have served as a special editor for restoration for the
last 3 years. In addition, since returning from San Francisco, I have learned
that I will probably be nominated as a contributing member to the national
Historic Buildings Committee, American Institute of Architects. Appointment
is, of course, not assured.

With regard to meeting your commission, I would hope that, because of the
expense involved, any trip to St. Augustine could be put to a more useful pur-
pose than a mere interview.

Without disregarding the fact that you have probably done some work on all of
the below, items that I think should be reviewed or prepared on any initial visit

are:

1. A general analysis of the planning and restoration objectives unique to
St. Augustine;

2. A tentative outline for planning the preservation and restoration of your
historic district to include a comprehensive area redevelopment plan within a
specific time-frame and budget, as well as a detailed investigation of building
technology and style;

3. Private, state and federal funds which may be available for the realiza-
tion of your project or parts thereof, and a determination of the best approach
to these sources;

4. A statement of the scope of services to be provided by an architectural
consultant, and the form of Agreement under which these services are to be
provided.

Several days should probably be allowed to put the above in meaningful form,
and, frankly, although I am willing to meet with your commission at any time at
my own expense, I would prefer to be considered as your consultant in the above
matters initially.

The rather exuberant interest I expressed in your project in San Francisco was,
and is, sincere.

I would very much like to be a part of your project, for which I feel well quali-
fied, and know that I can not only help you accomplish the restoration of the
Governor's House and other parts of St. Augustine, but also know that, as a part
of this work, I can help you effectively represent your needs to your commission,
your legislature, and to other interested parties.

Sincerely,
