James Madison to John Hartwell Cocke, 18 August 1828

Montpellier Aug. 18. 1828.

Dear Sir

I learn from Mr. Trist that he has communicated with Jones on the subject of Books, and that with the sanction of the Executive Committee, the views of the Visitors can be accomplished. I hope if you concur in what Mr Trist aims at, you will not wait for my expressed concurrence in this, more than in other domestic functions of the Executive Committee. With great esteem & regard

James Madison
