Your letter is at hand inviting me to a "Caucus Meeting" to be held at the house of R.W. Smith in Coram on the 4th of March.
I feel that I must drive the brush every day as the winter season is the only time I can confine myself very closely to my painting room - Therefore I must forego the pleasure to meet you at Coram.
I hope you will soon be relieved from that troublesome complaint the Measels - dangerous, if you take cold.
I remain yours very truly
Wm. S. Mount
