MVB to [Archibald McIntyre], 14 May 1815

DSir,

I shall not be at Albany in less than two & perhaps not in three weeks Mrs Van Burens state of health renders it necessary that I should go to the eastward with her.

Not having the act under which the lands in Mc Combs purchase were charged, before me & being unadvised as to some other facts which might possibly be material, I have not ^thought it^ proper to make up a formal opinion on the subject, but which I shall do on my return. In the mean time I would advise you to act as if the sales were valid as I have not a doubt but that will prove to be the case. If there are any Bonds or Mortgages that want attendng to give them to Mr Butler.

Yours very respectfully

MVBuren

P.S. What a remarkable election! At all events the councill will be ours this inter nos.
