MVB to W[illia]m C[abell] Rives, 13 May 1834


My dear Sir

I am told there is a rumour in Town that you were informed by the King when the Treaty was signed that it would not be carried into effect by the chamber. Although I am well satisfied that there is no truth in this story, I think you had better authorize me to contradict it, if that should become necessary, & if the truth will justify it.

I am Dr. Sir

In haste very truly yours
