My Dear Sir,
Your favour of the 10th inst is at hand. I presume my bothering will sustain no greater loss by the fine, then loss of time, and the usual inconvenience attending such disasters they wane fully insincere.
I have not seen your brother Shepard for two or three weeks. I believe he is painting at the [illegible ] Shall probably see him soon, when I will deliver your message to him.
I should like to see both you and my picture, at my house and presume that I shall have that pleasure in a very few days, as you have said you should like to exhibit it at the academy.
We are all getting along after our usual mode, and just beginning to thaw out again, like a frog in Spring, but not quite as musical we want you here to tune up.
Please make my best regards to all, and love to Maria, if you can get her consent you may kiss her for me. Although I would rather it were not done by proxy
Your Obt Servant
D. A. Wood
To Wm. S. Mount
