My charge for the Model of the façade to Lacock Abbey is nine guineas – The part of the building between the Buttresses I can at any time remove, so as to admit of other designs being introduced – these may be executed at 4 or 5 guineas each, within a few days after the return of the Model to me. The remaining parts of the Abbey awaiting an entire Model (which you were kind enough to express an intention of having as soon as the alterations should be determined on) may be added at the expense of 30 guineas –

I have this honor to be
your obligd respectful
