From James Madison to James Dinsmore, 16 December 1809

To James Dinsmore

Washington Der. 16. 1809


In your letter by Mr. Gooch,1 You suggestd. it as proper not to open a door from the Center room to admit a communication with the Kitchen. As that room will not probably be a permanent Dining room, it was not my intention that such a door should be opened, tho’ I forgot to mention it to you. The width of the Sheets of Iron, is 18 inches or so near it as that you may proceed on that calculation. I know not precisely when I shall be able to forward that & the other Articles. Accept my respects

James Madison

RC (DLC, series 7).
