MVB to Peter I. Hoes, 8 May 1825
May 8th 1825
I will be ready to go to Oswego on Saturday. You and Finkle therefore better come up on Saturday morning & we will start from here in the afternoon & go as far as Schenectady in the evening. Write me by mail when I may expect you & I will be ready. If any other day will suit better fix upon it but not longer than Monday.
Yours in haste
Ps. <unclear words> will please to send this up MVB
