My dear friend,
About the tin whistle-after my return I spoke for four or five whistles but Mr. John S. Lee of Port Jefferson L.I. was so busy that he could not find time to make them so I forgot all about them-I thank you for reminding me. On receiving your note,Icalled on Mr. Lee at the Port on Saturday-he was absent but his partner Mr. -
Corwin, said, that Mr. Lee might make some whistles in about three weeks time but they were very busy. When I can obtain one it shall be left according to directions. You have a delightful place. I love the Country-"God made the country man made the town." Your mother acts wisely in spending the winter at Shrub Oak. I have often thought of you, the children, your Mother and your dear Father. Annie is a good girl- My regards to all
Wm. S. Mount
P.S. I hope to see you before many months have passed away.
