Dear Sir,

I was so much hurried before I left Rome that I had not time to write you as I intended, that I had left an order with Mr. Irwin for the payment of the remaining part the sum I shall be indebted to you for the Hebe but probably Mr. Irwin has already mentioned it to you.

I have therefore only to request that you will be so good to finish this Statue as qwickly as you are able & I have no doubt that you will render it worthy of your deserved fame.

I am.     Dear Sir

Yr. Mo: Obed. Ser.

Sam. Boddington
