James Madison Papers

George Graham to James Madison, 27 April 1827

Washington April 27th. 1827

Dear Sir

Your very kind and obliging favor was duly received. In compliance with your request I enclose an accurate Copy of the original draught of the declaration of rights as presented to the Committee by Coll. Geo. Mason of Gunston. It is furnished by Genl. John Mason, and I have compared it with the original, which with the endorsements, I know to have been written in the hand writing of Coll. Mason

Genl. Mason has among his papers a Copy of a letter from his Father to Coll. Geo: Mercer then in London enclosing him a Copy of his draught of the declaration of rights; which I wished to have procured for you; and to obtain which has caused the delay in answering your Letter. As soon as it can be had it shall be forwarded to you

Mrs. Graham joins me in kind remembrances to Mrs. Madison & yourself yours very sincerely

Geo: Graham

RC (NN).
