James Madison Papers

James Madison to Alexander Scott, 13 March 1827

Montpelleir March 13th. 1827—

Dear Sir

I have recd. your letter of the 8th. in answer to which I can only say that I retain all the sympathy for your situation, and good wishes for a relief from it, which I heretofore expressed. But perceiving no proper, and therefore no useful, ground for the interposition you request, I must refer to what was said on that subject in my letter of March 1825.

The letters of Judge Washington, Mr Wirt, and Mr. Monroe are the best of vouchers for your personal worth, and for your qualifications and claims for public employment, and it will afford me sincere pleasure if they should avail you in a manner corrisponding with their recommendation, and your own deserts. With esteem & friendly respects

J--s M--n
