MVB to [Benjamin Franklin Butler], 3 April 1824

My dear Sir,

Genl. Marcy wants my house & I will of course be under the necessity of moving my goods again. Had I not better sell them. Let me know what you think would be the probable sacrafice if they were put up at a credit of 12 or 18 months.

Yours truly

M.V.Buren

P.S. Among my papers are a letter from Mr Peck my landlord & his last winter account. I wish you would send them to me by the last ^next^ mail. We differ as to what I paid last year. Dont forget on all our friends who have correspondnts here the propriety of writing before they seperate & of expressing themselves in strong language as to the certainty of the course Nyork will pursue on the Presidential election. It is the next best thing that remains to be done.
