that we were present on the hearing and
that the return is full and complete
according to our best knowledge & belief
and further that the charge of favor
or corruption is totally unfounded
Van Duzer was on his way to Albany
to resist when I received your letter – he
and your Agent will I hope confer
together. I am anxious to hear the result
V Duzer will in future have the charge
of the business here. Will you get copies
of the papers and confer with him for I
again repeat that I have not the least confi-
dence. The Court of Errors meet early in
Dicember we wish you to bring Frances
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

down to stay with us that short time.
Let us know where & Washington

meet her in Albany – be particular as
to the day and the Careage will meet
them at Newburgh. Write -
