You say they were done with "lack". I understand that to mean
shellac or does it mean varnish? In either case it seems to be
doubtful to us if it would be a wise move to put oil on shellac
or varnish. You better consult your architect with regard to
it before starting any wrk on it. You also should consider the
question if the architect has made a mistake there in specifying
varnish or shellac. If he has made a mistake you must ask him
to be honest enough to make good for this mistake.
In the matter of additional rooms for students
and new furnishings, we must ask you to delay these matters,
considering the financial condition of Synod. We believe that
that large room, which you intend to divide up in two rooms,
could be utilized as one large study room and inexpensive furniture
be placed into it to serve the boys until our financial conditions
allow the otherwise needed improvement. We also think that the
buying of furniture should be delayed until you know how many
new students you have. As soon as that question has been
settled you should report on that question. Also the building
of gravelled road should, if at all possible, be delayed.
Enclosed please find building orders.
With cordial greetings, I remain,
WH EP Yours very truly,
