Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 22 October 1824

Montpr Ocr 22. 1824

Dr Sir

I return your letter to Gilmer as fairly copied. Will he understand that he is not to return without a Nat: Philosopher, tho’ bringing the other Professors named, and despairing of that one? There will however be time for final instructions on this point after hearing further from him.

Yrs affectly

James Madison
