I look for Mr Bergamin in the Wednesdays stage from Richmond, to whom I have written to come up to undertake the covering of the Dome of the Rotunda he is strongly recommended as an excellent workman he covered the dome of the City Hall of Richmond & is a Frenchman & does not converse very intellegibly in english, if convenient I should be glad if you will come up on Thursday morning to see him on the subject, the job requires a man well skilled in the working of metal
