I shall talk to my brother [ ] that picture. The first time I go to New York.
His abode is at [ ] [ ] corner 5th av. & 5th St.
I have long wanted to see you & talk over the past, present & future. When do you go to New York?
Let me know. I have not the pleasure of the acquaintance of this [ ] who applied to you for your autograph. You are a sort of public character, well known to fame.  must pay the penalty of it by lending your name occasionally to autograph hunters.
We have had a beautiful autumn on this side of the South Shore wished for you
Wm, H. Ludlow
Wm. S. Mount Esqr.
