Lunt’s estimates

Rob. Edwards farm buildings             …         …         …                     30. 0.  0.          do        flooring dining room   …            …         …                     18.10. 0.

                                                                                                                   55. 0. 0.

White’s cottages                                              …         …         …          9. 5. 0.

Repairs at Stockton’s Wood                …         …         …                     38.10.0.

                                                                                                                   £104.15. 0.

            I have gone fully into these estimates with Mr. Lunt and he says that in the present state of trade it would not remunerate him to reduce them. The dining room floor (flagged) he thinks ought in fairness, in such a house to be boarded as independently, of being very cold the carpets are very quickly worn out.
