Stony Brook. May 25th, 1854
My price for pictures are from two to three hundred dollars. The painting I had in the exhibition this spring "Coming to the point," 25 x 30, price $300.00. It was painted by particular request. Mr. Wm. Schaus, paid me two hundred dollars, for the copy right, so the painting stood me in five hundred dollars.
I have only one painting on [hand?] Page torn] 25 x 30. Hon. Dan. Webster, among the people. It contains four figures and will be finished in about a month from this time.
Let me hear from you at your leisure.
