12th July. Captain James RE has forwarded “a general plan of the new grounds at the north end of the Dockyard, representing the Docks, slips, and Factory now building… enclosed also a detached plan of the Smithery.” Their Lordships approve of the plan & ask for detailed plan and estimates. “Steps are immediately to be taken… for the foundation of the Chimney for the new Smithery – the sum required to carry out these works during the current year will probably not exceed £3000-£4000.
