Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Henry Latrobe, 27 May 1807

Washington May 27. 07.

Dear Sir

My letter of yesterday was gone before I recieved yours of Apr. 29. & May 19. or I should not have written it, the latter one placing me at ease as to the glass for the skylights which was the principal object of my writing it.

A third gang, nearly as strong as the other two, has now got to work on our grounds, so that in a short time they will begin to shew handsomely.   they are beginning the foundations of the colonnade of the offices, but some instruction is wanting from you as to the front part of the passage. this however will be in time when you come.

I salute you with esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson
