Mr. Dear Mr. Mount,
You were kind enough to offer, when at our house, to buy me a tin flute: if you will please let me know the cost, I will send the money by mail, for you to purchase one for me.
If you could leave it with Mr. Alfred Roe 128 Broadway I should be sure to get it as my mother is obliged to see him on business frequently.
We are still at Shrub Oaks. and my mother is fearful we shall be obliged to stay here all winter, as it is so difficult to obtain accommodation in the city for so many small children.
As my mother dislikes the country so much, it will be quite a trial for her to remain here all winter.
My grandmother and aunt Kate have been with us all summer, making it pleasant for my mother.
We have often thought of you and would liked to have had a visit from you, but I suppose you think your studio is far pleasanter than Shrub Oaks. We are all very well, and hope you are enjoying good health also. Mother desires to be kindly remembered, and Annie often asks when Mr. Mount is coming to see her. Hoping I have not encroached to much on your valuable time, allow me to remain,
Your young friend,
