James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Thomas L. McKenney, 11 June 1822

From Thomas L. McKenney

Weston. June 11. 1822


I beg leave respectfully to enclose you a prospectus of the Washington Republican, & Congressional examiner.1 The first division of this title has been sanctioned, always, by the composition of our political parties; but for the last an apology must be sought in the extraordinary character which has marked the doings of the U.S. Congress during the last two or three years.

I avail myself of the occasion to assure you of my sincere attachment to you, & to your administr[a]tion, and to beg the favor of you to present my remembrance to Mrs. Madison.

Thos: L: Mckenney

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.

1Thomas L. McKenney, Prospectus of the Washington Republican and Congressional Examiner ([Washington], 1822; Shoemaker 9320). JM’s copy of this broadside is in the Madison Collection, Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Library of Congress.
