James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Pope Duval, 18 April 1827

Montpr Apl. 18. 27

Dear Sir

I just learned from Mr. Fs. Eppes that he is about making a visit to E Florid, and I feel a pleasure in the opportunity of making him known to you, well assured that you will be equally pleased with that of offering a kind hand to the son of J. W. Eppes and grandson of Thomas Jefferson. To these claims to whatever friendly offices you can render him, he adds a personal worth, which alone would justify the liberty I take in asking them for him. To yourself Sir, I renew assurances of my esteem & cordial respects

J. M.
