James Madison Papers

Monroe T. Allen to James Madison, 3 May 1833

Newbern N. C. May 3rd l833.

Respected sir 

The presiding officer of an university most probably being the proper person for one to address on business pertaining to it, and understanding that your honor fills the place of rector of the University of Virginia, I have come to the conclusion of very respectfully requesting of you a copy of the catalogue of the studies pursued both before and after entering the university: the fact being so well known that the university over which you have the distinguished honor to preside, is one of the most flourishing, and bears as good a literary and otherwise commendable a character, as any institution of the kind in this country, I have thought proper to solicit this favour from you sir, which I am sure you will have the goodness to grant. With sentiments of the highest respect and esteem for your worthy character, I have the honor to remain, your most obedient, humble Servt

Monroe T. Allen.
