Dec. 20
(Sunday) Inspected G. B. Rogers house, Indian Rd. Cresc. and Conduit St. and found following reasons why I would not wish to live there. In the lower hall on the Indian Rd. Cresc. side of the house the wall paper is peeling off and the wall stained due to leak somewhere in the roof. In the front bedroom closet the wall is stained due to leaky roof. In the bathroom the "Pressure Tank" leaks in a number of places and it is necessary to keep tins and saucers on the floor to catch the water. Although there was a bright fire in the furnace, the radiators were barley warm and Mr. Rogers informed me that during the previous very cold day the house was impossible to heat.
