MVB to J[esse] Hoyt, 14 November 1822
[No. 117.] [To J. Hoyt.]
Why did I not see more of you at New York? Judge Skinner, General Marcy and myself will come down with Saturday's boat, and wish you to engage rooms for us at the Mechanics' Hall. If he can give us his little parlor for a sitting room and bed rooms, it will be well; if not any other good rooms will do, so that they be not too high. I would rather stay on board a vessel than go into his third heavens. If you cannot do better you may let General Marcy's room be on high, and he can have the use of my room to do his business in, &c.
In haste, your friend,
M. V. BUREN.
