Smith Thompson to MVB, 21 March 1823


My Dear Sir

I wrote you a few days since a sober letter, and hope for an answer as early as your convenience will admit. Strange rumours are in circulation respecting you. It is said you have come out piping hot on the Presidential question. That you was daily in caucus with M L. Davis, Major O Conner Noah and others. And that you are going to Albany to have a meeting called and make a nomination at once. That you have had a peep behind the curtain, and many such like stories. Tell me frankly and candidly whether this is all made out of nothing, or only embellished a little

Yours very Sincerely

Smith Thompson
