Mr. Earle W. Newton
46 St. George Street
St. Augustine, Florida


Dear Earle:

Mr. Tyler Abell of the Post Office Department has
called us to advise that they are recommending the Post
Office Department vacate the St. Augustine building.
However, as you know, we wanted them out by July of 1964,
and Mr. Abell said that it would be at least July, 1965
before they could do this, since they would have to
obtain a new building. The only way they could vacate
earlier would be in the event the Commission could offer
them free building space until they could award a contract
and construct a new Post Office.

They would not be willing to move into temporary
quarters on which they would have to pay rent, since
they are presently in free space.

The news, therefore, is a mixture of good and bad.
After you think this matter over, perhaps you might want
to look about the possibilities of obtaining free space.
As I have said before in our conversations, Earle, I know
that this indirect way is the best way for us to proceed
to get help from the Federal Government. It would be
wonderful if we could get this Post Office Building for
our Centennial.

With warm personal regards, I am

Sincerely,


D. R MATHEWS, M. C.
