James Madison Papers

James Bayard to James Madison, 18 January 1833

Philadelphia Jan. 18. 1833


I hope I shall be excused for asking your perusal of the enclosed work upon the Constitution of the United States. It is intended principally for the use of Colleges and schools where the subject has hitherto been much neglected, so that few persons besides lawyers pretend to have any knowledge of the Constitution. At the present time it is peculiarly important that this instrument should be generally understood, and it would be highly gratifying to me if my humble effort should meet the approbation of one so completely master of the subject as yourself. With the highest consideration I remain Sir Yrmoobser
