Philadelphia 11th Octr 1830
Thos. S. Grimké presents his best respects to Mr Madison, and hopes that he has received ere this the two Copies of the Oration, before the Phi. Beta Kappa Society at Yale, one for himself, and the other for the Library of the University. The enclosed is sent for the Library of the University under the impression, that no copy has been hitherto sent, or that if sent, it had miscarried: such being the result of a conversation with a Gentleman, whom Mr. G. met this Summer at Yale.
