MVB to [William Peter Van Ness], 23 March 1812

Sir,

Since I wrote you on the subject of Judge Dorrs demand he has called on me & informd me that his necessities will not permit him to dispense with the immediate payment of the ballance due to him which on a rough calculation ^amount^ to $1744.

I write this under the Judges inspection who wishes me to assure you that he regrets the necessity imposed upon him to insist for on the payment of the money, but his misfortunes furnish as he supposes an ample op appology.

Yours respectfully

M.V.Buren
