James Madison Papers

James Monroe to James Madison, 17 January 1827

Oak hill Jany 17th. 1827

Dear Sir

I receiv’d lately your letter of the 9th. & intended to have answer’d it, by the mail of tomorrow, but have been very severely attack’d to day with a cold, & some fever, but which has abated since 4 o clock. I will write you by the next mail, should my health permit it. On my return, the Sunday after I left you, I found Mrs Monroe much indisposed, and altho her health, has much improved of late, yet it is not intirely restord. My exposure, with the rapidity of my mov’ment, laid, I presume, the foundation of the present attack. Our best regards to Mrs Madison & your Mother—Your friend—

James Monroe

My impression is that we ought not to enter into the merits, of the question, suggested from Baltimore—

RC (NjP).
