Gentlemen:
Beg to submit this my secohd
quarterly report on the roads in
District No. I. I have inspected
my roads and find them in very
good condition, especially the first
class roads. Some of the second
class roads are not in as good con
dition as they should be. During
the past quarter I have cancelled
the contracts of several of the con
tractors on these second class roads
because they would not make them
passable. I find a number, in fact
nearly all the bridges in District
I in very bad condition, a number
of them need rebuilding, some only
new flooring or new stringers, but
nearly all require some attention;
I am having a great deal of trouble
in getting lumber for this work,
in fact have used what little I bad
and now am not able to get more
to finish the work. I found the
ford near Tillman Station, across
Willis Creek in very bad shape
and had same crosslaid, also fond
it necessary to have the banks at
Two-Mile Ferry graded as they
were all Duf **
