Montpellier, Sepr 13. 1827
This will be handed to you by Mr. George Washington, a nephew of Mrs. Madison, who being with his wife & his mother Mrs Todd on a visit to us, indulges his curiosity by one to the University, and will probably mark his respect for the spot where we understand you will now be found, by a ride to it. He is an Eleve of the University of Transylvania, and tho’ a married man but a short time out of it. Be so good as to spare him half an hour of your kind attentions. Accept for yourself & all around you, our joint & cordial salutations
(signed) James Madison
