C. B. Sheldon will finish in about six weeks those pretty Philadelphia brick dwellings, 16.8x40, situated on 7th street between 6th and 7th avenues. The one nearest 6th avenue will be a two-story, basement, mansard roof, and in all probability will be occupied by himself. The other two belong to William Squires and are two-story. They will contain all improvements and be fitted up very neatly with cabinet trimmings. They have a one-story wash room extension 12x14. The neighborhood is good and the conveniences for reaching down town are only half a block away. Mr. Mogan, Mason.
