James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Hanbury Dwyer, 14 January 1825

Montpr. Jany 14. 1825


With your letter of the 23 of Decr. I have recd a copy of your "Essay on Elocution", of which you ask my opinion.

I have not found it convenient to give the Work a critical examination. But a Cursory one has satisfied me that its explanations, its precepts, and its exemplifying selections, justly class it with the books useful both to Teachers & pupils, of the branch of Education on which it treats. With friendly respects

J. M.
