To Ethan Allen Brown
Montpellier (Virga.) Feby. 15. 1821
J. Madison presents his respects to Governour Brown with many thanks for the “Report” accompanying his Note of Jany. 26. It is a very able paper, on a subject well meriting the consideration and discussion, to which the views taken of it by the Committee are calculated to lead.
