My Dear Mr. Mount
[ ] could send to the Brooklyn reception one of the Pictures you mentioned as the frame for Tease had not been sent home. - we should have sent for it had your letter reached us in time -we were exceedingly sorry for you had improved the picture so very much -I was at a very splendid wedding yesterday - the Bride was young and beautiful - the Groom rich and handsome
today we have fine sleighing - which is quite a treat for us New York people - as we rarely have snow sufficient for such fun. I hope this cold weather (illegible) not freeze you up in your little studio as we want to see you again this winter - I believe you said you should be down in a few weeks - so I hope we shall have the pleasure of seeing you very soon-.
I called to see. Maria about two weeks since but she had left for her country home please say to her I was very sorry not to see her and hope she will write me how much she has improved under the
water (?) treatment.
Mrs. Starr and my brothers send their kind regards -hoping to see you very soon - I am as ever
