Abstract

With the bearer of the letter, Grant sends Thorvaldsen 100 scudi to be deducted from Charles Bowyer Adderley’s debt to Thorvaldsen, according to an earlier arrangement that Grant thinks Thorvaldsen must have forgotten.

  Stimatissimo Sigr. Thorwaldsen

Non mi è stato mai presentato quel piccolo ordine per [tegn for scudi] 100 che Io vi lascai, dunque credo che voi Signore l’avrete dimenticato, perciò prendo la libertà di rimettervi col latore detta somma in saldo del debito del amico Adderley. Vi prego di accettare i nostri sinceri & rispettesi saluti

  &c &c &c
Lunedi 6 Settre. 1836. Alexander Grant.
