James Madison Papers

James Madison to William B. Sprague, 1 September 1830

Sept. 1830

Dear Sir

I recd. in due time yours of Mar. but suspended an answer till I could avail myself of a genealogical sketch made out some years ago by a relative of the family, which might furnish the information you wish. This paper I have not yet obtained. As soon as I can do so, I will make the intended use of it. In the mean time I beg you to accept this apology for the delay; with my thanks for your several unacknowledged communications, the last of which was your Sabbath School Address; and all of which bore the usual stamp of your able & elegant pen. Be pleased to accept also a reassurance of my esteem and best wishes
