Alterations to Spottes House.

We have building at Spottes (about 13 miles distant from here (Dumfries)) and obliged to be down there so often that it will not be in our power to stir anywhere else till these operations are finished as we find without the utmost attention there would be no preventing frequent Blunders ... The masonry ... is now so far finished that I expect it will be covered and slated in a few weeks, the Carpenters, Plasterers and other inside work ... is to be completed before December next.

Letter from Michael Herries to David Forbes.
