I beg to hand you another sketch for the ground of monument from a Cinerary Urn in “Bartolis Antichi Sepolcre” one of the other sketches is from a Sarcophagus from the Museo Pio-Clementino the sketch is one eighth the actual size and also of the same dimensions as the monument for Mrs Gaisford.

I beg to inform you that the last time I saw Mr Gaisford he said that he should return to England about March when he hoped to see the tablet fixed – waiting your instructions

I am Sir Your most obedient servant
T. Grimsley
