MVB to E[nos] T[hompson] Throop, [12 April-12 July 1834?]
My dear Sir
For very obvious reasons I desire not to be quoted upon the subject of your letter. I see no objection certainly to patronizing the North American as it takes a correct course in politics generally & may be useful. But that support ought not to be placed on the ground of a want of confidence in the Globe. I have not a particle of doubt of the <entire> integrity & sincerity of Mr Blair & that he will ^always^ do what he ought to do.
I am Dr Sir
very truly yours
