Albany Decr 29th 1834
I take the liberty of sending to you three of the Declarations on parchment which you will oblige me much by signing and then return them to Hon Walter Lowrie Secy. of the Senate, who will obtain the signatures of the other Gentlemen and return them to me—The Influence of this document has been vastly important—Will you please say to Mrs Madison that I gave her message to Mr Astor—With the most profound veneration for your character and best wishes for your health. I remain most respectfully your Obt. Srt.
