Summary
  • This accession is a photostatic copy of a drawing sent to the Governor depicting plans, sections, and elevations for a proposed powder magazine on the grounds of the Virginia State Penitentiary. The drawing was submitted to Governor John Tyler by the Keeper of the Penitentiary, Abraham Douglas, along with a letter. A copy of the letter is not included in this accession but is extant in the Governor's letters. The written estimates in the proposal, and presumably the drawing itself, are attributed to James Oldham. The cost estimates for three different sizes of magazine, as well as details on joinery used in the construction, are included on the drawing
  • This proposal was never adopted. Instead, another magazine plan by Curtis Carter, dated 6 July 1809, was instituted on the Penitentiary grounds. Information on Carter's design can also be found in Governor Tyler's correspondence
