MVB to J[ames] A[lexander] Hamilton, 15 February 1827

My dear Sir,

The required information respecting the proposed law shall be furnished in season. You will do yourself great injustice & grievously disappoint me if you do not go with me. No one else goes with me. To enable us to reach Charleston S. Carolina before the races are over, we go on immediately to that place & I propose to <illegible> visit the intermediate places on my return to Richmond. When there, the question can be made whether the western part of the expedition shall be prosecuted or abandoned. If the latter we shall return to Nyork before the first of May. Write me immediately of your plans

Your friend

M.V.Buren
