Wm. S. Mount Esq.
I wrote to you about a fortnight ago, relation to painting a portrait for me in the City. The lady whose portrait I wish is my mother residing at 20 Amity Place. I am desirous to receive a portrait of her as soon as possible. Can you take it soon? If so, please inform me, and I will write to her. Please also state where your studio is in town, and on what day and what hour you wish her to call. I would like a portrait of the ordinary size, with full face.
Wm. H. Ludlow
