Haley was paid for his work.

This is a scanned receipt on microfilm documenting payment for Salisbury Haleys survey of the City of Santa Barbara California. Haley knew the Natives had somehow addled his mind and was undoubtedly complaining of that and the fact that ordinance #39 didn't exist when he made the contract for the survey making him break his agreement with the Natives which caused them to sabotage his survey.

He was paid in full although the map and the stakes left in the ground were a dimensional disaster. The layout of the city was unofficial but still the stakes were used as the city grew, making permanent the severe misalignments of the cross-town intersections causing much litigation.
