My dear Frances
I take this opportunity of sending a letter as far as Great Barrington by B. F. Rogers who is now in this city with his sister and Mr. Saxton, 1 although I have little to write.
The controversy about the Greek vessels occasions some noise here. I shall send on some newspapers directed to Austin which will give you an account of the matter. In the Albany Daily Advertiser you will see Mr. Sedowick's narrative of the affair and in the Evening Post a little sparring between a foolish young Mr. Platt, and Mr. S. Mr. Sedgwick has done himself great credit by the fearless manner in which he has come forward to expose the frauds of these people, and the Greek agent has written a pamphlet which is printed but not yet published, and which shows the infamy of these proceedings in the strongest light. 2
