James Madison Papers

James Madison to D’Alembert Thorntone, 7 March 1834

Mar. 7. 1834

Dr Sir


I have recd. your two letters; the last dated the 25th. Ult: The Topics they embrace are important; But I must leave to others the attention they may merit. I am now entering my 84th. year, with a prolonged indisposition added to its infirmities; an apology, which I am sure, you will accept, for limiting myself to the thanks due for your friendly communications, and an offer of my good wishes for your continued health and a happy old age.

Draft (DLC).
