James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Peter Stephen Chazotte, 30 January 1821

To Peter Stephen Chazotte

Montpellier Jany. 30. 21


I have recd & thank you for your little tract on the culture of vines Olives &c. Its practical views of the several articles derived from long personal experience, with the apparent aptitude for them of soils & climates in a certain portion of the U. States justly claim the attention of those particularly living within its limits. Experiments for introducing these valuable productions are strongly recommended by the success which attended the culture of Rice & Cotton, the importance of which was at one time as little understood as that of the articles whose merits you discuss. With friendly respects

(Signd) James Madison

FC (DLC). In an unidentified hand. Marked by JM “Peter Stephen Chazotte.”
