Present

After duly deliberating upon the present situation of the funds of the Institution, it was unanimously Resolved
That the workmen proceed to carry up the walls of the Main Building to the top of the first Story, which it is supposed will consume all the materials now on hand or nearly so, and that they proceed no farther.
That as soon as the walls are raised to the height of the top of the first Story it shall be the duty of the Superintendant (Mr Henderson ) to examine the same & if the work be in his Judgment faithfully executed according to Contract to relinquish or Cancel the Bond of Mr Rogers for performance, the said Rogers delivering up the Bond of the Trustees or their Superintendant for the performance on their behalf, and to grant a certificate thereof to the said Rogers which shall entitle him to final Settlement with the Treasurer of the Board & full payment at the rate of forty Shillings for every thousand Bricks actually laid as Specified in his contract —
Resolved further that in the mean time as soon as the said Rogers shall have ascertained what

The Treasurer shall pay to him whatever balance may appear due to him reckoning at the rate of 40/ for every thousand Bricks actually laid, agreeable to the Contract existing with him.
Resolved also that Mr Bennehan & Mr Alves be requested and authorized to Contract with some person for Building a Grammar School on Lot No. or any other convenient place on the unappropriated Lands of the Trustees to be compleated by the first day of January next, upon the plan presented by Mr Alves and approved of. The price not to exceed (£150) one hundred & fifty pounds.
Resolved that as soon as the walls shall be raised to the height contemplated in the first resolution Mr Henderson shall take certain & effectual measures to preserve them from injury or decay & to keep the foundation free from water which may be left by rain or otherwise by keeping the drains left for that purpose constantly open or opening others where it may be necessary.
That Mr Henderson be requested in a particular manner to attend to this last Resolution and also to the preservation of any materials which may remain on hand after finishing the walls.
That Mr Alves give notice to Mr Rogers that the commissioners will not receive more bricks on account of
