The pig lead was shipped thence Nov. 7. and the remaining half of the sheet iron was shipped Dec. 1.   this last half is said to be thinner than the former, consequently should be used separately, so that whichever goes first to decay, may leave the other part wholly good. but the season is now too far advanced...

Mr. Traquair had once before got alarmed on the...

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.

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...
