Attractive handwritten letter from President Van Buren

ALS as president, unsigned, one page, 7.25 x 9, no date but circa October 1839. In full: “Say to Mr Butler Most of it would be more agreeable to him to get the $2000 note we have endorsed for Charles out of the way he may draw on me for the half of it and he & I will keep it subject to a final settlement of the whole matter; but if this is to be done his brother should first convey to some third person all those portions of the property which have been purchased from Strangers, to hold in trust, to be conveyed to us as we shall hereafter agree. I would propose Lucas Green as the trustee.” Docketing on the reverse in another hand reads: “M Van Buren, (Stuyvesant business), Oct 1839.” In fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
