Stony Brook, Jan 16th, 1852
Your letter is at hand. The model is partly finished. I am anxious to complete a portrait before I go to the City, say about the first of next month. However, if it is very important, with your instructions, I will go forthwith, to the Patent Office at Washington, with my first (and finished) Hollow Back violin.
Yours very truly,
Wm. S. Mount
