The new staircase is put up and now only wants the bannister and handrail.  The old staircase is taken down and the Balcony in a state of forwardness. I should be glad if you could come down to the north before you go abroad to see what has been done and gain your directions to proceed upon.
Date not given but is in sequence between 16th Feb and 13th July 1827. Reference to TWB coming south might suggest it dates from not long before the July letter in which those plans are clearer. 1st July used here
