MVB to Peter I. Hoes, 18 November 1826

Dr. Sir,

I dont care a fiddlestick about your pretended mistake. But I had no sooner got out of the smoke of that good old Town of Kinderhook but which has become so dangerous a place since the Philistines have taken possession of it, that I discovered that I had allowed you $193 without athe least Shew of Justice. You must <repaid> it if you expect prosperity here or happiness hereafter. I find that Mr Butler has received $119 or thereabouts on the note I let you have & I have left the money with him to make it right. I find also that the notes agt But & <New> for $100 which I left with Mr. Butler last fall have not been paid. These will enable him to make good any deficiencies that may arise upon the order on Danforth.

In haste your

friend &c.

M.V.Buren

They say in Schoharie that you said there that you did not care a damn about the election of Rochester if Mr Carty was but elected.  I take it for granted that cannot be true & if [...] had better write them.

Marginalia:

I promise to pay P I Hoes Sixty two Shilings & Six pence on Date of 28th Nov 1826, for Hewing all the Timber in my two Buildings excepting the Rafting which he is to Hew in the wood.

<Schoi> Van Hage
