Davy brings a box containing all the articles you wrote for, furnished by Doctr. Ott.   The lead (1036. 1b) left Philadelphia the 7th. instant.   I will thank you to tell mr Bacon that I forgot, in my letter to him, to tell him that I sent off from this place, 3. or 4. weeks ago, 8 trunks of books and some other packages for Monticello, & that when they arrive they must be put away in the...
I do not know whether mr Barry got here, window-glass for the Bedford sashes. will you let me know by the return of post, that I may immediately provide for it. Accept my best wishes. NCorniM .
Your’s of the 16th. was recieved by last post. I should certainly prefer Walnut for the Bedford sashes, because well rubbed on the inside & unpainted it has a richer look than a painted sash, and I believe no wood is more durable but if you cannot get it good, then certainly good pine will be preferable to bad walnut. it must therefore depend on your being able to get good walnut & without...
I find that the window weights will be so small & long that the small degree of warping which happens in their cooling will probably render them useless; I have therefore this day ordered 1000. lb. of pig lead from Philada, which I observe costs but ¾ of the price of bar-lead, to wit, 10 cents, and I presume is as good for our purpose. you may expect it at Richmond in 3. weeks from this time....
I find by Latrobe & Mifflin’s account that on the 7th. of Aug. they shipped for me from Philadelphia 2. boxes of sheet iron weighing 7C—2n/2.—16℔ has it ever been recieved? be so good as to inform me by return of post as I am called on for paiment. I never sent to them for sheet iron but twice. the question is then whether we have recieved a supply of sheet iron once only, or twice. best...
Your letter by the last post is recieved and I have directed the error in the glass to be corrected. but opportunities of forwarding things are now rare. a new coat of shingling is all that is wanting to the South Outchamber. for that we may prepare. Congress rose last night, I shall leave this on the 5th. of May & be at home the morning of the 8th. and will bring with me the money you desire....
Th: Jefferson incloses to mr Dinsmore the acknolegement of the bank of Richmond of a deposit to his credit of four hundred & fifty Dollars. he will make a further deposit in the same place about the last of December or 1st. of January for mr Dinsmore & one for mr Nelson, because at that time he will be entitled to recieve money in Richmond and so will avoid the risk of the post which is worthy...
Will you be so good as to press mr Jordan for the circular bricks? the semicircular cast iron sashes will be at Monticello before I shall, & I shall be anxious while at home to get them put in. mr Barry will be with us about the last of September, before which the glass will be recieved, & also the sheet iron for the South offices. I salute you with my best wishes. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
I recieved last night yours of the 24th. you shall have the 500. D. you desire on the 8th. of Aug. only you should guard against a failure of a single post which sometimes happens. the money will be recieved here on the 5th. and may be regularly expected by the horse post which will arrive at Monticello on the 8th. but a failure of the post might retard it to the mail stage of the 11th.—you...
I observed about a dozen gutters of sheet iron lying out in front of the kitchen, which I suppose to be left after all our purposes at Monticello are answered. if so, would it not be well to send 8. of them to Bedford for the gutters of the two Porticos? I suggest this for your consideration, being myself unapprised of the facts. I salute you with esteem. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
