MVB to Smith Thompson, 16 May 1823

My dear Sir

I have learnt with regret that your health is very bad, be so good as to write me on the subject directed to Newyork, where I intend to be next week. You ought immediately to take a trip to the north which I have no doubt would be of great service to you & when we will all be very happy to see you. I intended to have written you a long letter before this on the subject of the Presidency in fulfilment of my promise but concluded to reserve the explanation I proposed until we meet. We must by all means keep matters between us so fully explained that no answer be left for the admission of unruly jealousies. Make my best respect to Mrs. T & Laura & believe me to be as heretofore

yours truly

M.V.Buren
