MVB to C[hurchill] C[aldom] Cambreleng, 4 July 1827

My dear Cam,

I am sorry to see that a paper of so much real promise as the Courier should fall into so great a mistake as to speak lightly of the Morgan affair. Depend upon it that this course may do as much injury. There never was in any part of the world a more deep & general solicitude upon any like subject than now pervades the western counties upon in relation to the fate of Morgan. You will see by the Argus of today that last week there was a meeting of 3000 persons in at least one County. The editors are also mistaken as to the facts. There is no rational doubt that Morgan is dead & has perished by violence. Speak to them. Send by Sunday the information I desired in relation to the amount of Woollen Manufactures in Massachusetts before & after the Tariff of 1824

Yours truly

MVBuren
