Ruggles Hubbard to MVB, 4 September 1814

My Dear Friend

I have your Letter and shall act in all things conformable to your expectations having been absent 3 months in Ohio Kentucky & Indiana territory I have almost forgotten that I had the honor of a Seat in the Senate of New York, but the Proclamation which convenes us on the 26th. will enable me to renew the assurances of fidelity to your person and political elevation. I have never passed a word on the subject of atty Genl save what was sayd to you and Woodworth whilst you were here last spring. My own determination is unchangeable, and as I think you ^possessing^ both talents and politicks adequate to the duties of any office in the state so you may depend on me both now & hereafter whether in public or private life amoung the number of those who will stand firm & support your standard and because heretofore you have doubted I am happy in an occasion to give you this record of my devotion to you Remember me to Cantine and for once be satisfied that I have a right to subscribe myself,

your sincere friend

Ruggles Hubbard
