Montpellier Octr. 26th. 1835.
Your letter of the 12th. being addressed to Madison instead of Orange Court House was not received till the 24th.
Much as I wish success to the monumental plan, I know not that I could in any mode, or any terms manifest my approbation of it more strongly than I have already done in my published letter accepting the appointment conferred on me. With friendly respects
(signed) James Madison
