James Madison Papers

[James Monroe] to James Madison, 25 June 1829

Oak hill June 25. 1829

Dear Sir

We heard with great regret of your serious indisposition, but were relieved from anxiety, by a letter, some time since, from Mr. Taliaferro, which assured us, that you had nearly recovered, to perfect health. I have been much afflicted by repeated attacks, since we parted last, & by a recent one, which is the third, but am now so far restored, as to entertain a hope, that I shall be able to attend the meeting of the Visitors, at the University, which I understand will be on the 10th of next month. our gd. daughter Hortensia Hay, is engaged to be married to Mr Moyers, of Baltimore, & the union will be formed on the 5th. I propose, if my health permits, to set out on the 7th., in the hope of making your house, on the 8th or 9th, & on the 8th., if possible, to proceed with you, as heretofore, to the university. Be so kind as to drop me a line, to inform me, whether the meeting takes effect, at the time suggested.
