Your favor of the 6th. is recieved, and in answer thereto I observe that there is to be a semicircular window in the pediment of the S.E. piazza. if I understand your drawing, the tympanum is 18. f9f 9½ I wide at bottom, and 10. f3f 3¼ I on each side, clear, within the cornice. making the window then 4. f. wide (that is, on a radius of 2. f.) within the architrave, the architrave 8.

I received in due time your letter of Feb. 4. and immediately sent to mr Andrews’s to get the information you desired, but he was gone to New York. I waited supposing he might return and being just now on my departure for Monticello, I sent to his house again to-day, but he is not returned, nor expected under a month. any thing however can be done in his absence where they have the moulds: but...
Your letter of July 26. came on to this place after I had disposed of all my August funds, which obliged me to postpone a remittance to you till the beginning of September. I have directed mr Barnes, the first week in that month to remit 100. D. to mr Jefferson, on whom I inclose you an order to recieve it so soon as it shall have come to his hands. the balance of your account shall be...
Your’s of the 26th came to hand two days ago. I immediately engaged mr Barnes to remit ten dollars for you to mr Trump . I shall be glad to hear from you from time to time, informing me of your progress, what work you have prepared, what you have put up and what you are engaged in at the time, as it is interesting to me to know how we advance. accept my best wishes.

I recieved from mrs March a fortnight ago 128 D .80c for you: and understanding that she had not been able to sell the whole of your coal, I took what remained on hand 150. bushels at .34 amounting to 51. D. which sums, say, 179 D .80 are to be placed to my debit with you subject to your order. Accept my best wishes. Catalog--Heritage Collector’s Society, Inc.
Mr. Gantt now lives at Bladensburg, being appointed a judge of Maryland. I wrote to enquire of him some days ago as to the situation of your affair with Jackson’s estate. I presume he may be absent on some circuit, & that I shall have an answer when he returns. the ornaments for your Corinthian frize are now in hand. they are made in the same moulds with those in my Hall, far handsomer than...
I sincerely regret that any difficulties should arise between mr Brockenbrough and yourself on the subject of your contracts, but it is totally foreign to my office to intermeddle with them. I cannot entangle myself in the labyrinth of questions between the Proctor & undertakers. as the contracts are made with him, with him they must be settled as they would be with any other employer in any...
In answer to your’s of the 17th. desiring me to procure a Palladio for you either here or at Philadelphia, there never was a Palladio here even in private hands till I brought one: and I scarcely expect it is to be had in Philadelphia; but I will try both there and at Baltimore. The late mr Ryland Randolph of Turkey island had one, which is probably in the hands of whoever has his books, and...
As judge Gantt’s first letter gave me reason to expect a 2d immediately, I have waited to recieve that. it came to hand last night and I now inclose you both. as your action at Common law is dismissed, and you are not one of the Suitors in the Chancery proceeding I do not understand how you are to share with those who are. but of this mr Gantt is a better judge. if I can at any time see mr...
I did not recieve your letter of May 24. till my return hither 4. or 5. days ago. I am not able to give you any precise information as to the lands on Briery. I have heard that Joshua Fry sold lands there to General Lee, & also his share ( ⅙ I think) in a tract of 400. as. of limestone land adjoining Capt Christopher Hudson, on Hardware, in which last tract I am also a partner. on Fry’s titles...
