J[oseph] Gales Jr. to MVB, 15 January 1827


Dear Sir:

I hear that you have taken seriously some sportive hap-hazard remarks of my Lady, as supposing them to be derived from me. What she told you herself on that head, you may rely upon. I have nothing to say in your disparagement, and, if I had, should not be likely to say it in my family, where politics are never (or very superficially introduced.

I was reminded of the above by meeting with the enclosed, which I send you to shew what use is made of your confidential conversations by some of your friends—not doubting that the asterisks refer to you. Hoping you will excuse this freedom for the sake of the motive, I am

Very respectfully

Your friend & hle servant

J Gales Jr
