I shall very shortly have occasion for a considerable quantity of sheet copper, proper for covering cornices & making gutturs, which I presume should be of the thinnest kind to be had.

I. wide & 6. feet long, clear of cracks and flaws. they must be exact in size, because if shorter or narrower they cannot come into use at all, & if longer or wider it will be in pure waste. yet this last fault would be better than the first. as it will probably take time to select these at the rolling...
