James Madison Papers

James Madison to Richard Rush, December 1825

[after August 1825]

Dr Sir

Docr. Js W. Wallace is desirous of exchanging his residence in Virga. for one in the City of Washington; which wd. be made the more eligible by some official employment there. His thoughts are turned to a Lazaretto established or expected to be established. For the requisites of integrity & fidelity, he can not need my testimony; and his professional qualifications are I presume also not questioned. Knowing me to entertain friendly sentiments toward him and that I among your intimate acquaintances, he wishes me to express them to you, which I take the liberty of doing by the few lines I now put into his hands to be delivered into yours. Be pleased <to> accept <Sir> assurances of my great esteem & constant regard
