James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Richard Rush, 30 September 1815

Washington September 30. 1815.

Dear Sir.

As a little exercise of the pen, I have just been throwing out a small pamphlet, of a copy of which I beg your acceptance.

While at the bar, I had often occasion to perceive and lament the existence of a spirit too dependent and colonial. This little tract aims, as far as it goes, at showing that it is not justifiable.

I was happy to hear from Mr Monroe a day or two age, that his health is improved. The J. B. affair x has, indeed, passed off very quietly. I tender my usual respects:

R. Rush
