Stony Brook, March 18, 1851
Wm. Schaus, Esqr.
My dear Sir,
I had just been thinking about you and the charm that the beautiful Miss Conover held over your affections and that poor me was completely forgotten when your kind letter announced the happy change that was to take you from bachelorhood to union and happiness. I regret that I am not able to see my friend Schaus tied at the altar, but as you are left in good hands I sincerely hope that you and Mrs. William Schaus will lead a prosperous and happy life in this world and have a share of heavenly enjoyment in the next. All your friends here congratulate you. You are a lucky man to marry one of our York girls. Please give my best regards to your lady.
and believe me
Yours most sincerely
Wm. S. Mount
