MVB to C[harles] E[dward] Dudley, 12 March 1824

My dear friend,

The responsibility you have assumed is exactly what I would have expected from you. You know I have always described the best trait in your character to be firmness in time of real difficulty. Do but complete the work and you may rest assured you will never have occasion to regret your course. The enclosed will show you what is thought of the report here. It speaks the language of every one who has read it. As soon as Gales & Seaton are through with the speeches they have on hand they will republish it. I have sent it to Richmond. My best respects to the ladies.

Yours truly


M. V. Buren
