The purging and cleaning of the offices goes on and on and on.  Headway, is slow, but, it is headway.

Today's find, agreement between builder/contractor and my great-grandmother Lorena for building of a home, 1924.  The contractor to furnish labor for all wood work, brick foundation, two flues, lathes and plaster, slate and shingles sufficient to cover house and porches, paint house two coats inside and out (color may be selected by owner). Contractor to furnish nails, electrical wiring.

Owner to furnish  lumber, brick, lathes, sash and doors, also a "pump drove", sand, lime for brick work and sand for plaster.  However, the contractor to supply the plaster for the interior.

Ah, the simple times.
