James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Josiah Meigs, 25 June 1816

General Land Office June 25, 1816


I have the honour to inclose in this a Letter from Mr. Speaker Clay.

I returned home yesterday after an excursion of 18 days to the Northward during which time I visited all that was interesting. I spent several days at New haven. I found Doctr Dwight & the Professors of Yale College, exceedingly polite and obliging.

At Stratford I visited my venerable friend Doctor S.W. Johnson, who at the age of 88 Years retains his great faculties.

He enquired very kindly for the health of Mr. Madison; & begged me to do him the favour to present his sincere and profound respects.

I am, most respectfully, Yours,

Josiah Meigs
