Aaron Burr to Benjamin Franklin Butler, 18 October 1819

Dr Sir

I have conferred with Mr Baldwin on the subject of the answer of Augustine Prevost the elder, have explained to him (Mr B) my reasons for wishing to withold this answer until the Chancellor shall have decided on the exceptions to that of G. W. P., and have assumed to myself the whole sin of the Delay. I trust that you will not be further annoyed by him on this head.

Almost daily inquiries are made of me by our friends the Prevosts respecting the progress of the Fie fa Suit.

I am Dr Sir

very respectfully

Yr Obt St

A Burr
