Washington June 28. 07.
Mr. Perry informs me he is ready to proceed with the stable, but cannot for want of the hauling. not knowing exactly the different works which may be pressing on your waggon, I can only observe that it is very important that the stable should be done before I come home, which will be about the 23d. of July, because otherwise I shall have no place to put my horses, nor those of the company which comes. what could be done with them in that case? for within the enclosure they could not be put on account of what is growing within it. I mention this that you may weigh this with the other objects the waggon has to attend to, & decide according to their importance. As I shall go to Bedford immediately on my arrival at home, & shall need your horse (Jack) I must pray you to spare nothing to get him into the best order possible. I salute you with my best wishes.
