DescriptionLöw reports that he has found a place for the water closet near the Duke's bedroom, and encloses a drawing (507). He needs further information about the positioning of the cistern. He states that he can obtain another copy of the works of Voltaire for a further sum, and he has paid the subscription for the next batches. He adds that the Duke needs porter mugs in addition to the glassware already requested, and will also need a further supply of port. He enquires about getting Carrara marble tables made in England: the Duke needs at least 18 of these. He asks Budé to send him a reliable watch, and also to send, with the glassware, mahogany stands for cheese, and carving knives and forks.
