14 July 1833
My dear Mr V. President,
After all that has passed I have determined to send the contradiction of the British officers to the President in a private letter. I send you the Letter under a flying seal and I request that you will peruse it carefully, & if you see the slightest objection of placing it in the hands of the President, tell me so & let us consult before we proceed further. If you think the Letter correct and proper close it & give it to the President
I saw Major Eaton last & I think that he expressed himself glad, that the report was at last contradicted. God knows what foolish orders may have been found issued by Regimental officers but it is clear that Sir Ed: Packenham never issued the General Order attributed to him.
Dont forget that I expect to see yourself & the major at 5 O’Clock tomorrow
Most truly yrs
Chas R. Vaughan
