James Madison to John Hartwell Cocke, 16 May 1833

Montpellier May 16. 1833

Dear Sir

I have just recd. from Doctr. Dunglison a letter of which the inclosed is a copy; and I lose no time in making it known to you, as I am doing to the other Visitors—The following is an extract of a private letter which he desires may also be placed before the Visitors.

"Professor Davis begs me to express to you officially his desire to occupy my Pavilion and grounds when I leave the University. May I beg of you to let his desire be placed before the Visitors at such time as you may think proper. It will be to my Interest, that he should take possession of it, but this ought not perhaps to be regarded". With great esteem

James Madison
