Albany October 21st. 1838
My dear Jennings,
After a week spent about as I supposed
it would be I am returning home. The business about the
deeds being to be fixed but not fixed. I overcame Mr Ogdens
Birth: 1813-11-28 Death: 1890-12-07

objections but the matter was procrastinated by waiting for
Mr Vanderkemp’s
Birth: 1783-04-22 Death: 1855-12-04
letter. R M Blatchford
Birth: 1798-04-24 Death: 1875-09-04
will attend to it
today and write you forthwith. If as I trust they
get Vanderkemp’s directions to Van Hall
Birth: 1799-12-23
you will have
the deeds fowarded ^executed this week^ . I shall hear from R M B. & write
you. If executed V. H will send the deeds to you.
I had no time for anything but politics in N. Y. you
will see my answer as to Chautauqua
A letter will be addressed by me to the Abolitionists as
soon as I return to Auburn.
Our friends in this region of the state are ardent
Hot or burning; causing a sensation of burning • Having the appearance or quality of fire; fierce • Warm; much engaged; passionate •
and
confident. The best spirit prevails and we are to
have a generous rally. We all hope & believe that
we shall carry the state.
I am to remain at Auburn.
