IN REPLY REFER TO:

Mr. Earle W. Newton
Director General
National Quadricentennial Commission
St. Augustine, Florida

Dear Mr. Newton:

Thank you for your letter of January 20 enclosing a letter from
Lawson B. Knott, Jr., Acting Administrator of General Services
Administration, regarding the Government House or Post Office
Building in St. Augustine.

We shall be glad to include this building among those to be
considered for possible landmark status in connection with the
theme study on the history of American architecture which is now
in progress by the distinguished architectural historian,
Dr. James G. Van Derpool. However, we do not expect the study
to be completed until some time in 1966.

As all Florida studies and investigations in connection with this
architectural theme are conducted by the Southeast Regional Office,
National Park Service, Federal Building, P. O. Box 10008, Richmond,
Virginia 23200, we are sending a copy of your letter and enclosures
to Regional Director Elbert Cox of that Region. He and his staff
will be glad to have your suggestion and the information that you
have supplied. As it is impossible in the course of the Survey
for the National Park Service to make exhaustive historical studies
of individual buildings, we suggest that you send to Regional
Director Cox all pertinent information that comes to your knowledge
regarding the percentage of the original Spanish building that has
survived to modern times. Other data that may be learned regarding
the history of the building would also be important and if you and
your staff should contemplate preparing a report on this subject,
by all means be sure to send a copy of it to Mr. Cox.

We hope your plans and preparations for the Quadricentennial Year
are going well.

Sincerely yours,



Ac-';, Assistant Director
