your favour of the 28th ult is received and agreeably to your request expressed in it I have taken patterns of the glass wanted and send them enclosed. the rabbits are so very thin that it will be impossible to cut the glass exact enough without the sash, I therefore think Mr Barry had better only Cut the straight lines untill it gets here; you will also find below the Size and quantity of Square glass wanted.

I am Sir with respect your Humble St

Jas. Dinsmore
