Observatory timber contract, Portland, 1807 / Maine Historical Society

This is the contract Moody entered into with Benjamin Gould for lumber to build the Portland Observatory. How closely does the contract match Moody's original request? What date is the lumber set to arrive? Does that match the date requested by Moody in the previous document? How many 65 foot long posts has Moody ordered? How much is he paying for them? Where are they being delivered? What form of transporation do you think Mr. Gould will use to bring the lumber to Portland?
