To Aaron Ogden1
N Y. May 12. 1800
I expect to set out for the camp at Scotch Plains on Monday next.
You will provide bricks and materials for erecting at my Quarters a fourneau a machine for culinary purposes, which may be considered as a cube of brick about eight feet long, four feet thick, and four and a half feet high.
I have a waggon which will serve for carrying my baggage, but you will provide two horses for the purpose.
You will also have an oven erected at my quarters.
