Stony Brook Feb 1, 1838
I have received your favour of the 23 inst & I wish it were possible for me to get a picture ready for you in time for the exhibition, but, I do not think I can, as the one I have in hand must be finished in time for the exhibition in New York.
I shall endeavor to get the loan of one or two more pictures to send to the artists fund society Philadelphia.
I hope I shall have the pleasure to visit your city next spring and then I will call and see what you have to show me. In the mean time your picture shall be commenced the first leisure time I can spare.
I remain yours sincerely
Wm. S. Mount
