Washington Jan. 26. 06.
Your letters of the 20th. to Genl. Dearborne & myself are recieved. a recent loss in his family suspending for a while his attention to business. I sieze a moment to advise you to put off going to the furnace till we can concert a day with mr Foxall and give you notice of it. an advance of money to same amount can be made you. I wish this may reach you in time. Accept affectionate salutations.
