MVB to J[esse] Hoyt, 7 February 1827
Feb. 7, 1827.
My Dear Sir:
This will be handed to you by Master Hayne, son of my friend Colonel Hayne of South Carolina. He wishes to come on to this place under the protection of some person travelling southward. Do me the favor to see that the wishes of his father, in that particular, are attended to. My friend Thomas Ludlow is coming on.
M. V. BUREN.
