Your willpower must be great to draw so many attractions around you - have patience with what you already possess. Painting to order and getting to heaven is a "Hard road to travel" Oh that niche.
Suffer we to have a place in your affections [a while] longer. I have just finished a picture of the Bone Player A Negro - The order was given me two years ago. I had not had humor to paint it until lately.

You will (perhaps) see me this week.

Yours truly,
Wm. S. Mount
