Martin Van Buren, writing on his blind-stamped stationery, writes:
“Many thanks…for your very acceptable present & still more for the kind regards of my excellent friend Mrs. R. which you have pleased to communicate. I can say with perfect sincerity that I have seldom met with persons who made such favourable impressions upon me as was the case with both of you during our agreeable sojourn at Shaws.
If I ever come to N. York again, which will I hope be the case before long, I shall not fail to find you. The wines are both very superior and I will thank you to inform me…which wines can be ordered here form Spain & at what prices by the quarter cask….”
On this very day Confederate General Leonidas Polk became the first to invade a neutral state, Kentucky, while the Confederates also invaded the Territory of New Mexico.
Very good; folds; two small stains away from the clear ink writing.
