J. Madison has received the copy of the "Observations on the proposed amendment of Mr. Foot", with which Mr. Van Buren has favored him. Tho’ not according with some of the views applied to the occasion, he is fully sensible of the ability and advantage with which all of them are presented.
J. M begs Mr. Van Buren to be assured of his great esteem, and to accept a return of his best wishes, in which Mrs Madison desires that she may be joined.
