The paintings I believe are in perfect order and hope they may come to your hands in the same state. In the execution of them I have do my best, I hope they may meet your approbation, as paintings they are certainly superior to the first. as likeness's you will from your more recent observation, be the best judge in this respect from the change in position. I may have lost or possibly have gained - as to the price of the paintings (which in your last you desired me to name) I shall charge seventy five dollars each, this is the sum I have hitherto recei'd for this sized painting. If you please, you will direct the payment to be made to Francis Fisher of the Firm of H. Hovey & Co. Boston. I shall leave this for the South in twelve days - probably not be in Nyork. Yours, Alvan Fisher
