Washington, June 14. 1807
I arrived here about an hour ago,—having yesterday, broke the perch of my carriage, and this morning lost my way, so that I am several hours later than I hoped.—As soon as I can get my family in the house I have taken, I will wait upon you, probably about 6 o’clock. I have been through the Capitol and find every thing in good forwardness.—With the highest respect
