I have recd. your letter of the 17th. and will attend to the bill of Articles inclosed in it. I can furnish you with the $500 whenever you chuse to draw on me, or to signify that it be sent. ⟨You⟩ may dispose of the Porch at the S. W. end of the House as my Mother pleases. The area to the S. Wing may be omitted; but Mr. Chisolm, must run up the wall so as to have a proper face, when the area...
In your letter by Mr. Gooch, 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...
Davy brings a box containing all the articles you wrote for, furnished by Doctr. Ott.   The lead (1036. 1b) left Philadelphia the 7th. instant.   I will thank you to tell mr Bacon that I forgot, in my letter to him, to tell him that I sent off from this place, 3. or 4. weeks ago, 8 trunks of books and some other packages for Monticello, & that when they arrive they must be put away in the...
I do not know whether mr Barry got here, window-glass for the Bedford sashes. will you let me know by the return of post, that I may immediately provide for it. Accept my best wishes. NCorniM .

I find that the window weights will be so small & long that the small degree of warping which happens in their cooling will probably render them useless; I have therefore this day ordered 1000. lb. of pig lead from Philada, which I observe costs but ¾ of the price of bar-lead, to wit, 10 cents, and I presume is as good for our purpose. you may expect it at Richmond in 3. weeks from this time....
I find by Latrobe & Mifflin’s account that on the 7th. of Aug. they shipped for me from Philadelphia 2. boxes of sheet iron weighing 7C—2n/2.—16℔ has it ever been recieved? be so good as to inform me by return of post as I am called on for paiment. I never sent to them for sheet iron but twice. the question is then whether we have recieved a supply of sheet iron once only, or twice. best...
Your letter by the last post is recieved and I have directed the error in the glass to be corrected. but opportunities of forwarding things are now rare. a new coat of shingling is all that is wanting to the South Outchamber. for that we may prepare. Congress rose last night, I shall leave this on the 5th. of May & be at home the morning of the 8th. and will bring with me the money you desire....
