William Mount Esq.
I have understood by Mr. Andrew Evans that you are a portrait painter and have encouraged Mr. [Dwite Dyou] upon the subject. I wish to get a chance to learn the business and I write you this letter to ask you what chance you will give me. My age is 20 the 16 day of this month, and if you want some person to learn the business I should be glad of the chance.
Please write me by return mail if you want my references and what your terms will be. I can give you any references you may wish.
My address is
Tioga Co. Pa.
