Goodwood 1 September 1, 1773.
I received yesterday your letter of the 29th of last month, and am obliged to you for the account you give of the schemes relative to St. Paul's.2
If I recollect right the picture of Stratonice has but four capital figures in it, the other two being only companions:3 however, I do not mean to value the picture by the number of figures. On the other side of this paper I send you a draft on my bankers for a hundred guineas, which I should hope you would think a sufficient price for the picture, but if you do not, I will immediately send you another draft for twenty more.
I beg you will send the picture to my house at Whitehall,4 and am, sir,
Your most obedient,
