James Madison Papers

James Madison to George Tucker, 13 June 1835

13. June 1835.

Dr. Sir.

The box containing the bound newspapers has come safe to hand; one of the volumes in an improved state.

I hope my request did not hurry their return before you had done with them. Should it have so happened they are not beyond your reach.

I find that I have more reason for apology than you had, for the delay in returning Sullivan’s libel on Mr. Jefferson which you left with me. It was put into a state to be returned long ago, & I have but just discovered that it is still on hand, and I lose no time in forwarding it. I observe that a new edition revised by the author, has lately been published which may have pruned of some of its slanders. With cordial respects

J. M.
