Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Dinsmore, 1 July 1808

Monticello July 1st. 1808


we have three twists of Sash Cord to Spare from here which will be Sufficient for twelve windows & will nearly do all the weights—the waggon was obliged to leave the Sash weights behind being overloaded so that we must send them & the Cord along with the Sashes, which will be ready in a fortnight.—

Mr Chisholm will start for Poplar Forrest in a few days—Mr Perrey has shingled the Passage, Mr Maddox has begun the stables—we are engaged at the Chinese railing—

I am Sir with great respect your very Humble Servant

Jas. Dinsmore

P.S. there is no Pulleys here to send
