James Madison Papers

James Madison to Richard Rush, 27 February 1824

Feby. 27. 1824

Dr. Sir

Almost at the moment of receiving yours of Decr. 28. my hand casually fell on the inclosed scrap, which I must have extracted from the Author* (borrowed for the purpose) on some occasion when the right of navigating the Mississippi engaged my attention. I add it to my former enclosures on that subject, merely as pointing to one source of information which may lead to others fuller & better.
