Politics obssesses everyone and the picture market suffers as a result. He has large sums owing him, if he can bring them in he will remain "snug & still".

Several sales approach, Sir Joshua's, Bertoli's "wretched trash", the Orleans gallery and Calonni's, in which will be a very good Teniers. He has not sold his Cuyp, best landscape he has ever seen.
