I have the honor to report that I have this day employed Mr. C.B. Talbot as an additional draughtsman, in this office, and ask that his hire be approved from this date @ $150.00 per month. I also inclose the usual oath of office taken by Mr. Talbot. I shall probably need the services of two draughtsmen for three or four weeks.
Your obedient servant
