Edward Everett to MVB, 9 August 1827
9 Augt. 1827
My dear Sir,
I yesterday received Your speech, before the Convention at Albany, which You were so kind As to send me. Please to accept my thanks for it, & for Your obliging expressions relative to my health. I have not Yet recovered my strength, sufficiently to enable me to do much (particularly with My eyes), but am otherwise quite restored. As soon as I get able, I mean to trouble You with a letter on some parts of Your speech, in which I think You have misconceived some matters, in which I have borne an humble part.
Mrs E. is much obliged to You, for Your kind remembrance, As Miss Brooks no doubt will be, when she hears of it. My Wife desires her best respects to You. You will be pleased, I think, at the election of her Uncle, Ben Gorham, to the place of Mr Webster in the House of R.
I am, Dear Sir, Your obliged & faithful friend & Servant
