N.B. Although I have allowed this to remain as yet on the Plans, I cannot believe that this is a Roman work at all, as I can see no vestiges of the Romans in this direction hitherto, & the object itself is very small; it could only be the praetorium of the Camp from its size. I am making further enquiries on the subject. [Initialled E.H.C] Capt. RE. [Captain Royal Engineers]
