MVB to [Andrew] Jackson, 12 October 1833
October 12th. 33
My dear Sir
I congratulate you most sincerely on the results of the elections in Maryland, Pennsylvania & new Jersey in all of which our success has been complete. A more triumphant commentary upon recent events, & a more severe rebuke of the ruthless and unprincipled course of the opposition could not have taken place. When will our friends at Washington be made sensible, that you understand public sentiment infinitely better than themselves. I prepare to leave here <immediately>, & will avail myself of your polite invitation to stay at your house. Accept my thanks for your last friendly letter & believe me
P.S. The public mind here is all but united upon the subject of the Deposits.
[In Andrew Jackson’s hand]: Mr. V.B. will be here from Baltimore—take a room with me for a while—A J
