MVB to C[harles] A[nderson] Wickliffe, 8 July 1828
July 8, 1828.
My Dear Sir,
I have received yours at this place, and thank you for it. You may assure your friends in Kentucky, that the vote of this state will be stronger for General Jackson than his most sanguine friends anticipated. Of three-fourths there is not the slightest doubt. I care not who you show this letter to, but keep me out of the newspapers.
In haste, your friend,
M. Van Buren
