MVB to [Charles Jared] Ingersoll, 13 August 1840 

My Dear Sir 

I have been for several days reproaching myself for not having sooner returned your letter & thanked you for the contents of your own. But you can have no idea of the extent & variety of my engagements. I hope the news from Indiana & Kentucky has not frightened you. Two states ^agt. us before^ admitted to be doubtful for the future have become much less so now & that is the upshot of the matter. Remember me kindly to your family & believe me to be

very sincerely

your friend
