S.O. Fuller Esqr-
My dear Sir,
Your young and worthy friend (George B. Terwilliger) has an opportunity of corresponding with Mr. Gilbert Graham, 95 & 97 Duane Street, N.Y. Messrs. Hoger and Graham have seen Terwilliger's drawings & I think will take him in the lettering & ornamental shop, Duane St, providing he will be bound for the term of three of four years. Perhaps the first year he will obtain his board and cloths, the next year he will do better, &c.
If Terwilliger will have the courage to go through, he will benefit his employers & himself at the same time. He will have his evenings to himself (to practice drawing) and to see the different exhibitions of paintings now open in the City. I commenced as an ornamental painter. It is very difficult for a young man to obtain a situation in business in this City-I am very well acquainted with Mr. Graham, he is a good moral man. Mr. Graham
attends to the ornamental department in Duane St. & Mr. Hoger looks after the House painting part of the work in third avenue.
Ornamental & picture signs are always wanted and painted.
My regards to Mrs. Fuller.
Wm. S. Mount
