Benjamin Franklin Butler to MVB, 14 September 1815


Dear Sir, 

No oyer of the Bond was filed with the Judgment Record in the case of Van Bergen vs. Keys. The proceedings not being in debt but for money borrowed. But I saw the wrt. of atty which ^is^ unquestionably witnessed by the same witness to the Bond. William Van Bergen is the witness to the wrt. of attorney. 

I paid Mr. C. the amount of his a/c $89.25. I have been very busy since you left here have filed all the bills, prepared the copies and dispatched some. The Comptroller is engaged him personally, in making out a list of the Bonds & Mortgages to be handed over, and will soon have them ready. The applicants for loans begin to come in, four have been furnished with money since you left & two who have taken up almost all my time to day I have refused, for reasons which I hope will be satisfactory. 

Mr. George Hosmer could here yesterday to see whether any costs had been made on his bill, and I had the gratification of making him pay $8, all I could charge, the bill not being served. 

Vermont is decidedly republican in all its branches, and I hope this camp success is the presage of the triump of correct principles through out the East.

Beckman has given me a notice of appearance in the Chancery suit against the Hallenbecks from Simeon Ford, who appears for the two Hallenbecks. I will keep it till you come up on Sunday. 

I am your Obt. Servant.

B.F. Butler

If your brother is at Hudson, Please inform him, that I served his notices on Mr. Van der Heyden on the 12th & filled up the Record as he desired.
