Monticello Sep. 4. 04.
I some time ago made enquiry of you whether iron sheets of the dimensions therein stated could be obtained, and you informed me there would be no difficulty. I have now to desire you to send me an hundred sheets 11. f. 8 I. long and 16. I. broad. they must be clear of cracks, as they are for the gutters of a roof. forward them as usual to Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond. I salute you with friendship & respect.
