New York, Nov 11, 1854
Friend Mount,
I have duly received your kind letter and have to apologize for my long silence. Business here has been so very poor, that every trade is at a stand still. The fine Arts particularly have suffered unusually and you have done well not to bring your Webster picture to the City. Still we all must hope for better times and that very soon, and I shall be happy to see you soon. My family are all well, our little Annie is growing up a pretty young lady and may yet one day captivate your heart.
Please remember me to all your friends at Stony Brook and believe me dear sir.
Yours very truly,
W. Schaus
