[DRAFT]East Setauket, L.I.

David A. Wood, Esqr.
My dear sir, your note of the 30th ultimo, is perfectly satisfactory to Mr. and Mrs. Mount. The property or homestead is free and unencumbered. They could obtain the money in a moment near home; but they did not desire it. They thank you for your promptness and willingness to advance the funds; when the papers are properly made out and presented. #
A social meeting of the Academicians and associates, will be held at the Academy on Wednesday evening next.
I may attend; or may not visit the City in a month.
It is a fine day, wind not withstanding the thaw the harbor is still closed with ice.
Remember me to you father
Wm. S. Mount
P.S. The homestead includes the house, out buildings, barn etc.
# You must visit Stony Brook about the first of June and ride over-- take a view of Setauket -- and the Farm House barn etc.
