"Your letter concerning a deed for execution, was duly received– It would have been more satisfactory to me if you had forwarded the first deed and pointed out the defect– I have however executed your deed without alteration & herewith enclose it, on condition that you transmit to me the former deed instead of destroying it as you propose- if it is to be destroyed, I choose to perform that office myself." He closes by mentioning a Mr. Snowden who "has been here and has received the subject of Trinity Church." Breese was a lawyer and prominent citizen of Utica. Burr was considered a brilliant lawyer by his peers, and earned his income practicing law when he wasn't serving in military or political office.
