William Ingalls to MVB, 17 February 1828

Boston

Honble. Martin Van Buren

In the Senate of the U. States there are two high contracting parties of opposite politics, who have concerted a plan, & are now in the prosecution of measures, to defeat the elevation of Genl. Jackson to the presidential chair. As it behoves every friend to freedom, to employ every means in his power, to prevent a result, so disastrous to the republican cause, I have addressed this letter to you, believing it is in your power to nip it in the bud.

With great respect,

William Ingalls.
