Sketch of an Estimate for the monument
100 feet side

Plain stone work 55.000
Marble 12.500

The statue of Lord Rodney, erected by the Legislature of Jamaica was executed by Bacon for 1.000 Guineas, within its pedistal contained 4 Boss relivo's. Bacon, Flaxman & Banks are the best English sculptors, Hedouin, I believe the best parisian, Canova, not only the best Italian but I believe the first European artist.

(Signed) B. Henry Latrobe
