To James Oldham
Monticello Sep. 27. 14.
Being in immediate want of some glass to keep the winter out of our broken windows, I must trespass on your friendship, as being a judge of the quality to look out for the following sizes, to wit.
|50. panes||12 I. square|
|20. panes||12. by 18 I.|
|3. panes||24. by 18 I.|
mr Gibson will be so good as to pay the bill, and if you will have the box lodged with him, I will direct a boatman to call for it in whose care I have particular confidence. accept the assurance of my esteem & best wishes.
