Description: Fine content autographed letter signed, 4to, 2 pages, with integral address sheet addressed to "Benjamin F. Butler...at the office of Martin Van Buren, Albany," April 26, 1821. In this letter, Troup is upset that Van Buren undertook a case that was to be argued in the Chancery Court -- of which said case has been stalled. In truth, Van Buren was elected to the United States Senate from the State of New York in February, 1821, and was in Washington, D.C. when this letter was written. In part: "...I have not had the satisfaction of hearing from Mr. Van Buren the fate of the matter's report in my Chancery suit of Wood v. Sherwood. Has the report been argued? And if argued what is the Chancello's order upon it? If not argued when is it to be argued? And what does Mr. Van Buren think of my opinion about the value of improvements as a set off against my rent and damages? I am anxious to receive answers to the above queries; and you will greatly oblige me by giving me answers at the earliest convenience..." More good content. Very good condition.

Comments: American Revolutionary War hero who distinguished himself at the Battle of Saratoga while serving as Aide-de-camp to General Horatio Gates. He spent the post-war era serving in a variety of municipal and judicial posts in the State of New York.

Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
