Sepr. 7th. 1842
Dr & respected
Your friendly communication of the 8th. Ult has been put into my hands.
With regard to the subject treated upon viz, the covering of the Roof of the with Tin &c I have only to say that we have not come to any conclusion what kind of mettals or material we shall use as yet, and I think it would be best not to be in haste about paying money for those materials for some time yet as there are many other things which are far more needful for the at the present time. By the time the material will be wanted for the roof, we shall have had the privilege of mature reflection and as we shall have constant communication between here and there will be little difficulty in getting it when wanted if we conclude to fetch it from there.
I shall have a Deed made out for the six acres of land according to your instructions which I will forward to you for signature and acknowledgement by when he returns, which he will do soon.
I am happy to be able to state that the progresses steadily, notwithstanding the pressure of the times and the wrath of our enemies, [p. [1]]
