[Newburport] Mass July 31st 1854
My dear Mount,
I am up here resting for a few weeks, after lots of salmon fishing in New Brunswick.
I have dotted you, but why don't you give me a chance to dot some half dozen of your [illegible] friends [illegible]. Try again. Mr. Webster always wore a large seal ring and of late, when in full dress wore a gold watch and a very heavy gold chain, long and mostly hidden under his vest - made of California gold & presented to him by the merchants of N.Y.
Ordinarily he wore only a black ribbon.
Love to Shepard,
Yours truly as ever
