Stony Brook, Oct. 4th, 1848
Your letter confering upon me the Honor of a delegate, is at hand, but too late to attend the meeting. Had both your letters reached me in time, I must have declined the acceptance as my business prevents my taking part in any affair of the kind. The list of names you have mentioned I approve of. I placed my name on the notice to let the Barn Burners know that I was a Cass Man.
Mr. Orin Rogers of Setauket, and my Brother Shepard A. Mount, are the only true men I know of to [illegible] definite assistance from this quarter too.
Every vote given to Van Buren is a Whig vote, which makes the Whigs chuckle prodigiously. The Cass and Butler men must stir themselves night and day, to save old Suffolk.
