Dear Mrs. Wiles:

The Robert Mills Papers in this Division, about which
you enquire in your letter of April 24 contain no information
relating to his work as an architect of the Governor's House in
St. Augustine. The Prints and Photographs Division has made a
search for his drawings but with negative results. A small
collection of Robert Mills Papers is in the Howard-Tilton Memorial
Library, at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Faithfully yours,



David C. Mearns

Dear Mrs. Wiles:

Your letter of February 16 has been referred to the Library of

Congress by the General Services Administration.

As we do not have any original Robert Mills drawings in our col-

lection, and as we do not find any references other than those in

H. M. Pierce Gallagher's Robert Mills, we are referring your letter

to the Manuscript Division of the Library.

Sincerely,

Dear Mrs. Wiles:

I regret the necessity of informing you that the Public Buildings
Service does not have in its files copies of correspondence be-
tween architect Robert Mills and the contractor Elias Wallen per-
taining to the repair of the old Governors' House in St. Augustine
in 1833-4 about which you wrote on February 16. We also have not
been able to locate any drawings prepared for the project.

In an effort to assist you in locating the material in which you
are interested, we telephoned the Library of Congress and follow-
ing a discussion of your letter have referred your correspondence
to the Library for consideration and direct reply to you.

We sincerely hope that the Library will be able to locate or sug-
gest the location of the material of which you desire copies.

Sincerely yours,
