James Madison Papers

James Madison to Mathew Carey, 1 November 1829


Dear Sir

I recd. the pamphlet with which you lately favored me whilst I was in Richmond where the attention due to it was prevented by that demanded by my public situation. I can not now return my thanks without alluding to the impression made by the ability which pervades the several articles composing the publication. The views presented in som of them cannot fail to have a favorably effect in the midst of excited feelings, and to be duly estimated when these shall have given way to patriotic expressions at a cooler period.

Draft (DLC).
