We report V-band observations of MAXI J1807+132 (ATel #10208) from the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN or "Assassin"). The observations span 13 days from UT 2017-03-14 through UT 2017-03-27, during which the magnitude of the transient fades from V~16.1 to V~18.1. We do not detect (V>17.7) the transient in images obtained on UT 2017-03-11 and before. Photometry of the source is summarized in the table below:

Obs. UT Date         V mag 
2017-03-11.55        >17.7 
2017-03-14.56         16.1 
2017-03-16.40         16.1 
2017-03-20.62         16.6 
2017-03-23.57         16.6 
2017-03-27.59         18.1
