James Madison Papers

James Madison to Thomas P. Jones, November 1827

[ca. November 1827]

J. Madison presents his respects to Docr Jones with many thanks for the copy of his late address before the Franklin Institute. The facts & remarks on the employment of slaves, in Manufacturies, make it particularly interesting to the Southern sections of the Union, & encourage the hopes of a success in the experiments on foot, which may produce a rapid multiplication of them.
