In full: The pressure of my engagements has prevented an earlier attention to your request. Please to seal the enclosed after you have read it & shown it to Genl Spier. Remember me kindly to Mrs.
Lee & believe me to be Very truly yours. Three weeks after Van Buren wrote this letter on January 25, 1832, the vote in the U.Senate to confirm his nomination as U. Minister to Great Britain was held. He was not to remain there long. The confirmation vote in the Senate was a tie and according to the U.
Constitution, the Vice President was to cast the deciding vote. Calhoun, still smarting over a critical remark Van Buren had made about the previous Adams-Calhoun administration, cast a "nay" vote and Van Buren's nomination was rejected. Van Buren had to leave London and return to the United States but found himself more popular than ever, even gaining support from some of his opponents, who believed his rejection by the Senate was unfair.
Jackson repudiated Calhoun and at the Democratic Party Convention held in Baltimore in May 1832, Jackson was renominated for President with Van Buren as his running mate. Elected Vice President in November, Van Buren now presided over the body that had rejected him. Remnants of red wax seal attached, with tiny tear on leaf from opening. Lightly shaded, light ink transference. Vertical fold touches the "a" in Van.
