Content Description

Hamilton thanks Townley for a sketch of the Amerino. He states that he is prepared to sell his restored statue for £120. He also has a well preserved statue of a young girl, which he prices at £100. He ends his letter by commenting that the fine arts languish and there is a heavy military presence on the streets.
