Date18 October 1785
WriterLöw, Georg von
AddresseeBudé, Jacob de, General
DescriptionVon Löw hopes that the books he has sent (part of the works of Voltaire) have arrived; he has paid for the second batch. The Duke has found a suitable place for a water closet, and von Löw asks him to send it as soon as possible, with installation instructions. He also asks Budé to choose all the necessary types of glasses and decanters, cruets and carafes for 30 place settings at the Duke's table; they should include at least 12 dozen pretty glasses with gilded rims for lemonade and barley water served after tea at receptions. He will write later about chandeliers.
