Dear Sir

The Copy of your Message to Congress transmitted under your Cover, having arrived during an absence at our University from which I am but just returned, a regretted delay has taken place in acknowledging the favor. I now offer my thanks for it, with an expression of the due sense I have of the increased interest given to the topics embraced in the Communication, by the eloquent and impressive form in which they are presented. With the highest esteem & respect

James Madison
