James Madison Papers

James Maury to James Madison, 22 June 1825

Liverpool 22d June 1825

Dear Sir,

’Tis long since I have had the pleasure of hearing from you, except indeed thro’ the public prints, by which I see you had been visited by the favorite of our nation.

My son Matthew has been twice to the United States, but, I think, he had not the opportunity of paying his respects to you. I now beg leave to present him to you & to the ladies. I hope you & they continue in the enjoyment of good health.

If you shall have been a Tobo planter last year; so much the better; for I think you will be rewarded with a long price at your own markets; and, probably, better than here.

My son William joins me in kindest regards to you and the ladies. Your old obliged friend

James Maury
