This is the 19th century equivalent of someone starting an email with "I hope this message finds you well :)" The image of a well instead of the actual word is a little bit playful, as if to counteract the formality of the sentiment. And a little dorky. At this point when anyone sends me an actual emoticon I feel like I'm reading correspondence from another era. Ye olde emojis, like runes from an ancient culture. = :P.
