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