My dear Sir,
I have uncorked your good will offering-sent me by the members of the National Academy of Design; a few friends who have a love of art enjoyed its contents with me. The brand is a choice one, bearing your initials and the endorsement of Eastman Johnson Esq. Many thanks to the Academecians for their kind remembrance.
You have my congratulations on your re-Election.
Yours, Very truly,
Wm. S. Mount
P.S. It is gratifying to find so many Academecian and associates, on the side of temperance. My conviction is, that no one but a temperate person should drink liquor and that very seldom.
