Rufus King to MVB, 31 October 1823


Dear Sir

I have received a letter from Mr Peck offering our former accommodations at Georgetown. Probably a similar letter has been sent to you, and to Mr. Rensselaer. I do not recollect whether time has permitted your receiving from Gadsby, an answer to the Enquiries that you intended to make respecting his house, and without the means of comparing, I feel the force of Habit, which grows stronger as ones grows older, in giving a Preference to Georgetown. I have not replied to Peck, nor shall I do so until I hear from you & Mr Rensselaer to whom I write, to the like purpose with this letter. I do not, I hope ask an improper, and would desire to avoid, an impertinent question, in wishing to be informed, if it be true, as I hear, that Miss Dickerson would not hesitate in the expression of a modest Consent to an interesting proposal if made by one of the Senators of NYork.

faithfully your's

Rufus King

P.S. I shall enclose this letter unsealed to Mr Rensselaer, with the request that he shd send or deliver it to you. This will <answer> my object, as well as to make the same Communication respecting Georgetown in another letter.
