R[ufus] K[ing] to MVB, 18 April 1823

dear Sir

I do not perceive that any thing further can be done on your part, if you could do, what I do not believe you can, if you could infuse something of vigour in addition to the honest views of the S. of the N. it would impart to him a qualification that would be generally of service, and on the present occasion is of much consequence. I cannot but believe, that you will look with your usual Circumspection on what ever is going on, and in which you may figure. Do not misinterpret my motives in making this suggestion; in the delay which the S. of the N. intimates as likely to take place, the only course that may not be misrepresented, will be one that shall avoid particular notice: yet I will not recommend a Reserve, which may lead to conjectures where you are situated.

yrs truly


I thought on the whole expedient to send the letter, of wh. the Copy is subjoined
