MVB to Andrew Jackson, 25 July 1834

My dear Sir

I enclose you a letter from Judge S. by which you will see how very sensitive he is for fear of disappointment. I also enclose you two letters I have recd. in regard to Genl Cameron. I cannot but state that it will be a great relief to you to dispose of the question as soon as possible. Our friends here are in the highest spirits & full of confidence. Our friend Kern of Philadelphia is better & goes also to Saratoga. Webster is I understand to spend sometime there. They mean to make this State the battle ground but we shall beat them gloriously I trust. You can have no conception how general the has opposition to the Bank has become. The politicians on the other side are satisfied that is is a dead weight upon them and desire to be relieved from it; but we do not mean to let them off. The danger, if any, now is, not from the Bank from ^from^ a Bank. But the crimes of the former will I trust destroy the prospects of the latter. John wishes to be remembered to you. Smith writes me that he will be here on the 5th. of August. <illegible> Write me as often as you have leisure [. . .] me kindly to your House[. . .] & believe me to be

very truly y[. . .]

M.Van Bu[. . .]
