I have just received your Letter <1> and in reply beg to say that it is quite impossible for me to say what would be charge for the Designs for your Home until I have seen the place and ascertained what the extent of your wishes may be respecting it, I feel perfectly satisfied that you would not wish me to undertake the business without an adequate remuneration and you may feel duly assured that I should not expect anything beyond what is perfectly reasonable. As regards the entire or partial execution of any plan that I may propose that must remain as a matter of perfect convenience to yourself all that I should deem it necessary to require would be that the deviations should not be made without consulting me and I should not consider the matter further than as might regard my professional reputation which I would on no consideration endanger. – If this statement is perfectly satisfactory I shall be most happy to wait upon you, and a letter to that effect addressed to me immediately at Butleigh near Glastonbury were <sic> I shall be at the Honble & Revd George Neville Grenvilles <2> will find me

I am Sir with great respect
Your most obed Hble

Edw Blore
