Jany 17th 1829
My dear Sir
Allow me to introduce to you my friend & successor Mr Dudley, who you will find to deserve your estee[m] & confidence, as well personally as politically. He knows your reputation & of course favourably.
I was greatly disappointed in not seeing you at Nyork. I went to where you had been (<illegible> a storm) but found that you was there no longer.
Remember me kindly to Mrs Woodbury & believe me to be
Very sincerely your
