James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Hartwell Cocke, 3 August 1827

Montpellier Aug. 3. 1827

Dear Sir

Since my return home, I have received the letter from Mr. Gallatin of which a copy is enclosed. Be so good as to forward it to Mr. Cabell, with a request that he send it to Mr. Johnson, who from Richmond will easily give it conveyance to Mr. Loyall. I will make known its contents to Mr. Monroe and Mr. Breckenridge. I have heard nothing from any other quarter on the subject of the vacant Chair. I shall write to Mr. Gallatin suggesting the duties as now allotted to it; but without a certainty that he will be found in England; and with little prospect if there, that the communication will be of any avail With great esteem & regard
