James Madison Papers

John Griscom to James Madison, 17 April 1833

New York 4 mo 17 th 1833

The author of the accompanying Volumes has very often regretted that he did not comply with his inclination to present a Copy of them to President Madison at an early period after their publication. They are not offered to him at the present time from any belief that he will be interested in the books themselves, but only as a testimonial of his sincere regard & esteem for one whom he has long considered as one of the most enlightened & virtuous patriots of our Country. It will afford him great gratification, to receive an acknowledgement of their reception, if possible from the pen of President M. himself, and to learn that he & also his companion are in the enjoyment of good health.
