March 4th. 1807
I enclose a letter from the collector of Baltimore to Mr Duval respecting the Statues. It appears that the duties are only 115.50; the other 45.64 being for freight & storage. If Mr Franzoni will appoint an appraiser, a new valuation make take place in order to re-ascertain the duties; but no time should be lost, as the sale is advertised for the 12th inst.
Respectfully, Your obedt. Servt.
