MVB to [James] Madison, 28 September 1826

Albany

My dear Sir,

As the accompanying report may not have reached you I take the liberty of transmitting it. You will observe the lame attempt of the committee to make out that Genl. Washington was in favour of the power. The result of their labours must be a contrary impression; for however difficult it may be to discriminate between this question and that of the Bank originally, still the deep interest he appears to have taken in the question of internal improvements taken in connexion with circumstance of his never bringing the subject before Congress can admit of but one inference & that is that he was against the power. Have the goodness to make my best respects to Mrs M & to believe me to be

Respectfully & sincerely

your friend

M.V.Buren
