My dear Sir,
I had double pleasure this morning, for I received your kind letter and also the visit of your brother. His picture has taken the place of "Right and left"-the latter is to be within a few days on the broad ocean. I am pleased with the Rose of Sharon and no doubt the public will be the same. I hear with delight of your good humour to paint pictures. Bravo! Bravissimo! as the Italians would say. Come soon and bring your picture with yourself. Mrs. Vanderhof is very desirous to see you. I believe she wishes a portrait of her father. Mr. Price expects you shortly at his residence at Glencove and I have been written to meet you there. I shall write you as soon as I can go to Mr. Price, so that we meet together. I should have written you ere this, but business has been so good that we business men think too much about dollars and cents. Still my thoughts have been often at Stony Brook, and its hospitable inhabitants.
Please give my best respects to the Ladies and believe me my dear Sir,
Yours very truly friend
Wm. S. Mount Esq.
