MVB to [David Ellicott Evans], 9 December 1819

my dear Sir,

After mature examination & reflection I have engaged lodgings for you & Mrs. Evans at Mrs. Rockwells & I venture the regard of Mrs. E. upon the propriety of my choice. You have a large room very well furnished, a small bed room adjoining & Board for yourself Mrs Evans & servant girl for $20 a Week. I have boarded with Mrs. Rockwell myself & know her to be an affectionate & kind woman & that she will take the greatest pains to make Mrs. E.s situation comfortable. I also expect that Mrs. Livingston with whom Mrs. E. will be much pleased who is a plain, sensible & good woman will be there. The rest of the boarders will be few in number & of the first respectability & in addition to all that I shall have you the second door from me.

I have enclosed the an extract of from your letter to me to Mr John King. who You will receive in a day or two a pamphlet upon the subject of the support of Rufus King written by your hble. Servant. I hope you will come down strong on that point from the west.

Yours very truly
