Instead of disapproving the freedom of your communication, as you seem to apprehend, I return you my best thanks for it, & hope you will always say what you think in such matters. As long as I have confidence in the motives of my friends, (which is eminently the case in respect to yourself), they need not fear any thing from the frankness of their suggestions.
I am really very busy, & must be permitted to kill two birds with one stone. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to gratify the "young Mens Institute" but I cannot consistently do so.
I have received with much satisfaction, your letter communicating to me, by the direction of a Democratic Convention, held in the Ninth Ward of the city of New York, a copy of its proceedings, in which the conduct of Mr. Tyler in placing his veto on the Fiscal Bank Bill, is highly approved, and the repeal of the Independent Treasury system decidedly condemned.
I have been prevented by press of company & farming duties from sooner acknowledging the receipt of your letter, which I read with the greatest interest, & now write with my Servant waiting to reach the mail before it passes. Your letter, & two very interesting ones yesterday recd.
I owe you many thanks for your obliging communications, as well as apologies for not having sooner acknowledged them.
No one I assure can be more sensible of the Utility of your institution, or more sincerely desirious for its success than myself; and I feel highly honored by the application you have been instructed to make to me by its members.
Will you have to goodness to select the paper for me mentioned in the enclosed memorandum of Messrs. P. &. F Man. You will see by the memorandum the reason for haste. After you have made the selections Messrs P & F.

If when I get settled I will search my papers but have no idea of finding it.
Sir Joseph de Courcy Laffan, who has been introduced to me as an English gentleman of great respectability; and professing much personal merit, proposes to spend a few days at Washington during the Extra Session. He visits us with liberal friendly feelings, and is sincerely desirous of understanding our Country and its institutions in their true character.
I am fearful that I spoke so indifferently about the $800 as to induce you to believe it altogether unimportant whether I recd. it or not.
Mr Henry will not go to Newyork & it would be extremely inconvenient for me to go. The Chancellor will hear us at any time after his return in Vacation & I hope you will not fail to write me by return mail that you consent to this arrangement.
Enclosed is a letter from the President to Mr Bow it was with reluctance that ^he^ consented to write it. For really considering all the Circumstances which attend this transaction it is on his part an act of condescension
on his part to attempt to explain to them at all. Your situation, the unexpected success with which you have managed a subject which was on...
Enclosed is a Letter from the President who I presume explains all to you. Whatever pretensions there now may be to the contrary by some who wish to <will> us <asleep> there is no doubt of their Intentions as to you it is alledged that you are not a resident of the middle district, that your house is locked up &c.

I have this moment examined Abms. oration & pronounce it a masterpiece. I shall be up with one or two friends, I wish you would go over & see W P.
Say on Tuesday.
Yours was duly received, the complexion of your ticket is very odious to all liberal & well informed republicans in the country, their illiberal & Jacobinic conduct will however have a conclusive tendency to prevent them from extending their disorganizing Spirit ^in^ to the Country. So that if your ticket but succeeds it will be all for the best, there is no...
After Mr. Van Alen arrived at my house on Sunday evening, we sent for T.L Hogeboom who agreed to start the next morning before day for Hillsdale, and to meet Abraham & James at my house yesterday as early as possible. I wrote to Maj. Tanner, his conduct was highly honourable,
