James Madison Papers

James Madison to Daniel Webster, 27 March 1826

Mar. 27. 1826

Having to thank you for a copy, just come to hand, of the Exve. Communications to the H. of Reps relating to the Congress at Panama, I take occasion to supply the omission to do so for a former favor of a like sort. I hope you will not doubt the value I set, as well on the motive as the matter for which I am indebted: But as such documents generally reach me thro’ other channels, I feel some scruple in permitting you to be at the trouble of forwarding them; possibly too at the loss of some other friend. Be so good therefore as to accept a release from your obliging promise, with an assurance of my continued and cordial esteem & regard

Draft (DLC).
