MVB to Jesse Hoyt, 17 November 1819 

DSir, 

On attempting to put the glass you sent us in the lamp which Thomas supposed was too large we broke the lamp itself, which I wish you would get Mr <Cox> to mend & return to me as soon as practicable. Whether he was paid for the glass or not I know not nor is it material, he shew me the glass & said the lamp <Box> & all was so much which I paid him, but if he had sent the glass with it originally he would have shewn more attention to it & the lamp probably not have been broke.

Your friend

M.V.Buren
