Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to John Lenthall, 21 October 1806

Washington Oct. 21. 06.


The sky lights in the Dome of the Representatives chamber were a part of the plan as settled & communicated to mr Latrobe. that the preparation for them has not been made, & the building now to be stopped for them, has been wrong. to correct that wrong now they must be immediately prepared; and that the building may be delayed as short a time as possible, as many hands as possible should be employed in preparing them. Accept my salutations & best wishes

Th: Jefferson
