MVB to R. McCarty, 25 July 1827

W.

My dear Sir,

I should have written you before and oftener but have really not had time & it has not been important to your interest that I should do so. The affair of surveyor has terminated as I anticipated. The Patroon was faithful to you but he will tell that the <quarters> from which you expected aid you did not receive it. A man cannot judge in his own <concern> of that character. It was perfectly plain to me from the beginning that you could not succeed, but I was not at all surprized that it was not so to you. The woollen Bill will not I think be acted upon for want of time. Make my best respect to Mr Thompson & believe me to be as always

Your friend

M.V.Buren
