John Sudam to MVB, 25 November 1811

Sir,—

The language which you used respecting me and my conduct in court, last Saturday evening, renders it necessary that I call on you for such explanation, apology, or satisfaction, as one gentleman when thus injured has a right to demand from another. My friend, Mr. Grosvenor, who will hand you this, is authorized to confer with you, or any one designated by you, on the subject, and to make such arrangements as the circumstances of the case may in any event require.

Yours, &c.

JOHN SUDAM.

Thomas P. Grosvenor, who submitted this letter as part of a long newspaper piece on the MVB-Sudam dispute, added this note at the bottom of the letter:

The original copy of this note has been mislaid—Upon application of Mr. Monell I was unable to obtain a copy of the original—But the above is the substance, and I think is literally a copy.
