Wm. Schaus Esqr.
It affords me great pleasure to state that I am engaged painting the Bone Player for you, for publication. The size is 29 1/2 in by 36 1/2 inches. I will not say any thing about the painting, as your own eye will tell you better than a description from me. I expect to have the picture finished next week. You may prepair a head (round molding) frame, to exhibit it in, if you think proper, in your own store.
Yours, very truly
Wm. S. Mount
