James Madison Papers

James Madison to William T. Barry, 30 December 1826

Montpr. Decr. 30. 1826

Dr. Sir

I have duly recd the copy of your Eulogy on Adams Jefferson & Shelby; and I can not return you my thanks without alluding to the particular value given to it by facts which it records; as well as to the additional interest it deserves from the glowing patriotism which pervades it. May I remark at the same time that it has not escaped circumstancial errors which will probably be corrected by a posthumous appearance of papers on the files of one or both of the two Senior Patriots.

Draft (DLC).
