James Madison Papers

James Monroe to James Madison, 16 June 1828

New York June 16. 1828.

Dear Sir

I received yours of the 3d. instt, a few days after our arrival here, and shall profit of the information you have given me, that the meeting of the Visitors takes place, on the 10th. & not the 15th. of next month, at the University, as I had supposed. It is my intention to depart hence, for Loudon, in time to enable me, to make arrangements for the harvest, & other concerns there, & to reach the University, at the time appointed.

I enclose to you a letter from Mr Hassler, who is a candidate for the professorship of natural philosophy, & who states his claims in the letter.

Mrs Monroe suffered by fatigue, the last day of our journey, but has, in a great measure recovered from it, and we indulge a strong hope, that our visit to Mr Gouverneur & our daughter, will restore her health. They reside at a Cottage, 9. miles from the city, on very elevated ground, near fort Washington, & we are with them
