Respectfully returned This Bureau has already aided in building the house at Catonsville to the amount of $625.02. I therefore recommend that this request be not granted. ^[[also]] as the money is so much needed in places where there are no houses And I think the people and their kind friend will be able to complete the house without more aid.
