MVB to [Andrew] Jackson, 7 September 1833

my dear sir

I hope you wont forget to take the opinion of the Attorney General on the question as to the right of the Secty of the Treasury (of which there can be no doubt) to make the proposed arrangement with the State Banks after the Deposits have been ordered to be discontinued in the Bank of the U. States. It will be best to have such a document. I leave here tomorrow morng in company with Washington Irving to take a tour of some weeks amongst the old Dutch people on the [. . .] River & on Long Island. A letter from you (if you have occasion to write me) sent under cover to Mr Cambreleng will not fail to reach me.

Please destroy the enclosed.

Your freind


P.S Remember me cordially to the Ladies & all your Household

[In AJ’s hand]:

Inclosed for the perusal & consideration of Mr. Taney
