James Madison Papers

From James Madison to James Dinsmore, 16 December 1809

To James Dinsmore

Washington Der. 16. 1809


In your letter by Mr. Gooch,1 You suggestd. it as proper not to open a door from the Center room to admit a communication with the Kitchen. As that room will not probably be a permanent Dining room, it was not my intention that such a door should be opened, tho’ I forgot to mention it to you. The width of the Sheets of Iron, is 18 inches or so near it as that you may proceed on that calculation. I know not precisely when I shall be able to forward that & the other Articles. Accept my respects

James Madison
