REPORT OF THE SUPERVISING ARCHITECT OF THE

TREASURY.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, Office of the Supervising Architect, October 30, 1869. SIR: I have the honor to submit the following report on the condition of the public property under the supervision of this office, together with an exhibit of the expenditures made under its direction during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1869, and of the total cost to that date of the various public buildings, with the construction, preservation, and custody of which it has been charged. The tables of expenditures have been closed at that date, in accordance with your directions to conform to the usage of the department.

They now embrace the purchase, sale, and supervision of all real estate belonging to, or under the custody of the Treasury Department, excepting light-house property. The preparation of desigus, estimates and specifications for buildings; the supervision of their construction; the repairs and improvement, the furnishing, lighting, and heating of those already completed; and the construction and supply of all vaults and safes used by the department.

Upon taking charge of this office I found that no record existed of the real estate owned by the department; that the title papers were in various hands, and that in many cases no official record existed to show that the property belonged to the government. Under the instructions and by the authority of the late Secretary of the Treasury, a thorough
