Charlottese Nov 3rd 1823
I fear that yourself or Mrs Madison have sufferd a disappointment by a long cold ride to O: Ct. He. with a view to the contemplated review of yesterday.
I was detain’d here on Saturday by sickness & on Sunday Morng found myself too unwell for too long a ride.
My health is now better & I have no doubt I shall be able to attend at ye [thorn sign] Ct He next sunday for wh I have made arrangements.
With affecte regards to Mrs M & in the hope that she has recover’d from the effects of her fall I am dear Sir Very respecty yours—
