MVB to James A[lexander] Hamilton, 1 February 1829


My dear Sir

When do you go to Washington. I have a letter from my friend Major Hamilton which I should like to send to you if there is time. Let me know by return of mail. Poor Butler lost his election through the abandonment of him by a large portion of your Delegation at the last moment. He expected to get them all but Mr <illegible> who openly & honestly went for Bronson from the beginning.

Yours in haste
