Let me my dear Sir beg your early & effectual attention... Continue Reading

I have refrained from writing you a single Letter, during the present campaign—and I deeply regret, that I should the first one, which I should have to write, would be one, which gives me as much pain to write, as any which ever came from my pen. I need not tell you, Mr. Van Buren, the feelings which I entertain towards you. Trusted at all times with a kindness, a liberality, a distinction far ... Continue Reading

Yours of the 16th. instant is just recd and I hasten to thank you for the enclosures, which I retain to refute the vagrant falshoods of our noisy worshipers of Hard Cider, logg Cabins & Coons, who have been exulting much that Newyork, South Carolina & Alabama &c &c were horse foot & dragoons going for them. I have all along assured them that the Federalists hard cider drinkers... Continue Reading

From the proceedings of our County meeting you will perceive that we are correct if we are not as numerous as we might be. Our new Sheriff turned rather pale at the meeting when I introduced the resolutions but did not think fit to enter into a discussion he made a virtue of necessity with a tolerable good grace. He assured me that he would exert himself to prevent Willet from having a vote in...

I have not to my knowledge ever had a certificate or evidence of the transfer of the Pew to me. If when I get settled I will search my papers but have no idea of finding it.

I am fearful that I spoke so indifferently about the $800 as to induce you to believe it altogether unimportant whether I recd. it or not. Indeed I substantially so regarded it when I wrote, but having been now for several weeks in the hands House furnishers and House repairers & gardeners &c &c I find that the payment of that amount to my credit in the Bank of America in this City in...

Least Mr Williams should have neglected to write to Mr Wendell, I took Mr Riker with me and called on him yesterday. We found that agreeably to Mr Williams request he had sent up, something to authorise you to vote for him but fearing that there might be some defect in the form, I prevailed him, with some difficulty however to execute another, and Mr Riker copied it on the spot from one in our...

I have this moment examined Abms. oration & pronounce it a masterpiece. I shall be up with one or two friends, I wish you would go over & see W P. Van Ness. You & him can get the Governor to come to Kinderhook. He is determined not to stay at Albany & would rather come to Kinderhook than Hudson, if you write up to him or go up he will undoubtedly come.
