Statement of Interest

Speed's drawings were probably slightly simplified in execution See minutes 8th Feb. 1808. "A petition was laid before them from John Speed mason in Newburgh praying the Council to allow him Five Pounds for the plan of the Town House as the same had been approved and another tradesman appointed to execute it ... It was moved how far it would be

proper to make any alterations upon the plan in point of economy or saving expenses which being considered it was agreed to do so accordingly".
