Montpelier Septr. 18. 1824.
I recd. yesterday your letter (without date) and enclose one to Mr Forbes our Consul Gen’l at Buennos Ayres recommending you to his friendly attentions, and his aid in procuring you those of others in other places. Should time permit, you may doubtless obtain on application to the Department of State such an authentication of your Citizenship as will give you every where the protection due to that character.
Mrs Madison received the kind expressions from Mrs Marshall and yourself with the best wishes for the improvement of her health and the re-establishment of yours. Be pleased to offer & accept mine with a repetition of my friendly respects
