MVB to David Ellicott Evans, 19 January 1821

My dear Evans,

I have again postponed my visit to the west untill next season. By consequence I will be deprived of the pleasure of seeing you & my good friend Mrs. Evans. At the close of the election here I will go to Newyork, by <to> pass to S the way of Connecticutt at which place I wish you would let me hear from you on the subject of the election but more particularly on your private affairs as to which (I mean of course the agency business) be particular as to what is done & contemplated. Mr. & Mrs Sedgwick will pass through your place on their way to the falls, If you should happen to see them I know it will GIve you pleasure to shew them all the civility in your power. Make my best respects to Mrs Evans & Mrs Ellicott & believe to me

ayours faithfully

M.V.Buren
