27. August 1828
My Dear Sir,
Your letter was Duly communicated to Mr <illegible>. He much regretted you could not be here, & I had my share of regret, as I had set my heart on you as associated in his course. But, the course is settled. After various attempts, to interest <illegible> from <illegible>, & various offers, we at last had reason to believe that if ^we^ should require the note to be Distroyed, & thus all <plan> of any future proceedings <illegible> against Jonathan Bloom, removed, all would be well. On Saturday therefore the <illegible> was discontinued by George Bloom. The Costs & Dft paid. The note tore up & all is ended. And every man may form his one conclusions.
You say in your letter You will see me in Poughkeepsie after <Court>.
It will give me great pleasure to see you here, after <Court>. Do not Disappoint me. I will promise to accompany you <Dr Lee> the Secretary of the Navy, and his, &c &c &c, with whom I have spent this evening. They will remain in this place some time, & I hope till after you shall have time to make me a visit.
Command me at all times. Be assured of my Respect and friendship.
We shall have a long week at our Circuit, which commences tomorrow. Next week, I go to Kingston, after which I shall talk politics as willingly as Lane.
Believe with me with sentiments
of great Respect Truly yours
James Tallmadge Junr
