MVB to B[enjamin] F[ranklin] Butler, 25 June 1833
June 25th 33
My Dr Sir
I thank you for your attention to my wishes, but by retaining the original letter it is not in my power to reply to it, having no account of the names of the writers. Please send it to me to Concord, to the care of <Warren> Hill Esquire, who will send it after me. The reception here & every where has been most brilliant & affectionate but they have been in danger of killing the President with their kindness. He has been confined for 48 hours but is up again this morning. Another northeaster with rain, & wind is upon us without apparent hope of cessation. Tomorrow if the weather is fair, & the President well enough we will go farther east. Remember me affectionately to Mrs. B. & the children & believe me
Very faithfully yours
