Verburg, to receive a commission for the new situation. And she, the director, did request the artist to make a proposal. This he did within short span of time as the demolition, as well as the building activities, were already underway. He presented the plan to her and the architect e few weeks later.

The proposal was never accepted and payment never took place. The successor of Mrs. Verburg, E. P. H. Kerckhaert, even wrote him later that he never had been ordered to make this proposal -sic-
