MVB to [Smith Thompson], 4 April 1823


My dear Sir,

It was my sincere wish before I left Washington to be perfectly understood by you on the question of President & untill I reced. your letters on my arrival here & was firmly persuaded that such was the case. WeI shall now wait the result of the matter respecting which I have last written you & will then communicate with you most explicitly. We may differ in opinion but knowing you & knowing myself I well know that we shall hnever have occasion to complain of a want of frankness or fairness on either-side.

Yours truly



April 4th. 1823
