The first 28 pages are financial in nature and include transactions from May 1st, 1876 through April 30th, 1877. The next section is the report of the Engineer-in-chief, who reports on several projects including the New Pier No. 1., N.R., Canal and King Street sections, and other areas. The folding plates depict a section and of a bulk head wall (King St. section).  The last plate is an isometrical sketch of concrete blocks showing binding frames. The following section is again financials (showing what tasks were accomplished) and then a report of the Treasurer.  A useful document for those interested in Dock related projects in NYC during this time period.
