I now inclose you the letter for mr Appleton which covers one for mr Mazzei according to promise. I have considered the case of mr Lenthall according to your letter of Feb. 29. 04. and to the statement you put into my hands the other day, and I approve of your allowing him three dollars & two thirds a day. pressed with business before my departure I can only add my salutations and assurances...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Latrobe and returns him the volume of Parkyns’ Monastic remains, with his thanks for the opportunity of looking over them. if the Maisons de Paris is arrived Th:J. will be glad to recieve it, as he sets out for Monticello tomorrow or next day. if convenient to mr Latrobe Th:J. will be glad to meet him at the Capitol to-day between one & two aclock....
It would be well to recieve from you as early as possible the report you propose to make for Congress as to the progress, state and further cost of the public buildings. I am apprehensive of a more serious opposition to another appropriation than has ever been made. perhaps after you shall have sent me the report, & it is referred to a committee it may be expedient you should come up yourself...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Latrobe, and in consequence of his information yesterday that there is a great deal of broken glass which may be cut into sizes sufficient for private purposes, but not for the public buildings, & which it would ease those funds to dispose of, he prays him to have prepared for him the following parcels, to be packed in boxes ready for...
Mr. Munroe has just communicated to me a statement by which it appears that there remained but 17,000. D. in the treasury of the monies appropriated for the South wing of the Capitol, of which sum I have now given him a warrant for 10,000. D. so that no more than 7000. D. remain subject to future draughts. I mention this, as it renders it necessary that not another Dollar may be expended or...
I had the honor of writing to you on the departure of the Sculptors, and afterwards, & to give you every necessary information relative to the Statue of Liberty, of which you appeared so desirous to be informed. Either my letters to you, or yours in reply have miscarried, but the truth is, I have not received a line from you since the one in which you requested my services. You will therefore...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Latrobe. he delivered yesterday to Colo. Tatham (who said he was to meet mr Latrobe at 10. oclock, and therefore came to ask them) every drawing of the capitol he was able to find, & which, as he then supposed, he possessed but after he was gone he found another which he suspects to be exactly the one mr Latrobe desires, as he observes in it a part...
Yours of the 13th. came to hand only yesterday, having been delayed by the high waters consequent on the rain of the 11th. & 12. I am quite willing that the earth for finishing the N.W. quarter of the ground at the President’s house, should be taken from the cut marked B in your drawing, instead of the place from O to I as proposed by me, either way kills two birds with one stone. To remedy...
I inclose you the bill appropriating 110,000 D. for the South wing of the capitol & 20,000. for the North wing & other public buildings as it has past the H. of R. with only 17. dissenting votes. I have no reason to suppose it will fare worse with the Senate: but till it passes them it will not be safe to take any positive steps. I will endeavor to have it hurried there, and as soon as it...
The bill appropriating 110,000. D. for the South wing & 20,000. for the other public buildings. is passed—it would be well therefore to contract for the materials immediately, and to begin at once all the branches of the wooden work which can be done independantly of the walls. also to order the paving tile from Bourdeaux, Havre being blockaded. mr Lee our Consul there will do any thing in...
