MVB to Lorenzo Hoyt, 2 June 1827
Will you do me the favor to get Dennis or some one else to clean up my harness and Phaeton, and send them to me by one of the boats, with directions to give me the earliest information of its arrival. I want to exchange it here. I cannot pay the postage of this but will repay it among your other expenses. Excuse me for troubling you, and write me
MVB to Lorenzo Hoyt, 6 June 1827
I have sent a copy of the enclosed to Mr. Wilcoxon, with directions to advertise anew. The Chancellor would not grant the order B. sent by Mr. Butler. Consult Mr. B. as to the form of making the amendment, and do it for me forthwith. I have no opportunity of paying the postage of this but you will, of course, keep an account of your expences in this matter.
MVB to Lorenzo Hoyt, 12 June 1827
I must leave here on Saturday morning, and if my carriage cannot be sent down so that I can have it by Friday morning, it will not be worth while to send it.
MVB to Lorenzo Hoyt, 13 June 1827
I am detained here by nothing save the carriage; and, contrary to my letter of yesterday, I wish you would send it down upon the receipt of this, if I should have to wait until next Monday to exchange it.
