James Madison Papers

James Monroe to James Madison, 20 October 1824

Washington October 20th 1824

Dear Sir

Mrs Douglas, with two of her daughters, having intimated their intention to visit Virginia, & to take Richmond, & some of the upper counties, including Orange in their route, I have taken the liberty to give them this introduction to yours & Mrs Madisons acquaintance. They are of New York, & well respected there, & my nephew Lt Monroe having married one of her daughters, excited a strong motive with me, that they should be known to & kindly recd. by our friends. With great respect & sincere regard dear Sir yours

James Monroe
