on or before 16 Mch 1807
Mr Latrobe has mentioned to me the necessity of very shortly moving the furniture from the late chamber of the Ho. of Rep.—as this will be attended with some expence; and will naturally fall in the furnishing department, I shall as soon as you may be pleased to furnish me with a written authority, proceed in the business as far as may be necessary at this time—I find, Sir, that the furniture which is now on hand, is worth about five thousand dollars—and that the principal part of what will be wanting, will consist of carpeting, and hangings for the windows—
With the greatest respect and esteem I have the honor to be Sir Your Hble Servant
