James Madison Papers

James Madison to Edward Everett, 19 July 1825

Montpellier July 19. 1825

Dear Sir

I have duly received the copy of your Oration at Concord on the 19th. of April last; and have derived much pleasure from the excellent ideas with which it abounds, & the elegant language in which they are conveyed. You have given it particular value, by making it a record of interesting details which might otherwise have passed into oblivion. With great esteem & cordial respects

James Madison
