MVB to J[esse] Hoyt, 29 December 1826
Dec. 29, 1826.
My Dear Sir:
I bought a deerskin vest, at the store on the corner of Broadway and Liberty street. Will you do my friend Mr. Rowan, Senator from Kentucky, the favour of purchasing one for him, and sending it down by the first opportunity? It must be the largest in the shop, as he is a prodigious fellow. If you can, oblige him—write him a civil letter—he is a very worthy fellow.
In great haste, your friend,
M. V. Buren
