MVB to [James Samuel] Wadsworth, 29 September 1834
Septr 29th. 34
My dear Sir
I regretted extremely that in writing the enclosed letter I was deprived of the pleasure of saying good bye to you in person. I may possibly see you in Nyork. If not, remember me kindly to your good wife, & accept my sincere prayer for your joint & jovial welfare. The letter to Lady Wellesley I should not like to repeat, & will therefore thank you to say nothing of the matter.
In haste very truly
