James Madison Papers

James Madison to Richard H. Wilde, 21 April 1834

21. April 1834


J. Madison, with his respects to Mr. Wilde, thanks him for the copy of his speech on the reasons of the Secretary of Treasury for the removal of the Deposites; delivered in the house of Representatives, March 18. =34.

The speech is certainly a very able one, and belongs to the first class, on that very distinguished subject.

Amid the painful aspects presented in our public affairs, the pride of our Country is at least flattered by the high & varied talents which have signalized the discussions in its Legislative Councils.
