Mr. W.S. Mount
Enclosed you will find fifteen (15) cents. I would be very much obliged to you if you would buy me another tin whistle and send it up by Fannie Seabury, whom Miss Maria said was coming up to the city the latter part of this week. Those whistles are very much in demand here just now, and some of the little boys have the old kind but there are two or three notes false in each of them. I can play almost any tune on mine now learning them all by ear.
Whenever you come to town we would be very glad to see you and have you examine those pictures that I was telling you about down in the country. You must excuse me for troubling you, but my old whistle is getting rather rusty so I want another one. Hoping that this letter may find you in good health and enjoying yourself
I remain yrs truly J. M. Wayne
P.S. If it is not done before Fannie comes up Fan will tell you my direction.
