MVB to Robert Troup, 1 December 1817

DSir

Enclosed you have a subpoena agreeable to your wishes, the Interrogatories have been duly served and an admitted copy transmitted to the <anxious> Mr Green. Publication has been delayed untill the 23d Inst. I selected that early day in the hopes of yet being able to bring on the cause at the Jany Term but of that I doubt from the Impression of business about that time. The witnesses as to <Platt's> character have been examined & place it on strong ground. 

Your sincerely

MV.Buren

(Turn over)

There will not be time sufficient after the 22d to take the <exam> to Mr Howlands & after the time allowed to fill cross-interrogatories. I would doubt the policy of such a measure. I had to give 20 days notice.
