Your favor of June 30. came duly to hand, with the vial of tincture you obligingly sent, for the Servant with a swelled neck. The vial being now exhausted I obey your request, in observing that the patient has been much benefited by the medicine. The tumor tho’ not entirely removed is greatly abated; and the eyes which for some time, during the use of the tincture, became more inflamed with a...
J. Madison with his respects to Dr. Dunglison begs him to accept a Bonnebouche of Madeira Wine. Having been long from the Island before it was drawn from the Cask, and long afterwards under the Cork, it is ready now for the Cup & lip. Printed facsimile of draft (in John M. Taylor, From the White House Inkwell [Rutland, Vt., 1968]).
Your favour of the 22d. did not come to hand till yesterday afternoon. We are so fortunate with respect to the hooping cough, that it maybe safely brought in the case of your little patient who may herself be benefitted by an excursion. Mrs Madison and myself will, therefore, with much pleasure, receive the fulfilment of the promised visit from yourself and Mrs Dunglison, as soon as your...
In the uncertain State of the fund lodged with the Barings, I have enclosed to Mr. Gallatin a letter to that House requesting it to pay a draft from the American Minister at Paris not exceeding £100. and another to the Minister authorizing him, to make the draft, and place the same or as much thereof as may be required in the hands of Docr. Miguel, or such other person as you should name,...
I am just informed by Mr. T. J. Randolph that he is compelled by the insolvency of the Estate of his grandfather to apply, as Exr. for the Books bequeathed to the University & now in its Library, as assetts towards paying the debts of the Estate. It will be proper therefore that the Books be delivd. to his order which will probably not be delayed. FC (DLC) .
I have recd. yours of the 9th. inst. and even not under the distressing circumstances it presents at the Universy see any course better adapted to them than that which the faculty have decided on. Might it not be well for the Proctor to have several hundred Bushels of good Lime so distributed as to produce its corrective effect where there may be the most need of it. With great & friendly...
I have just recd. yours of the 19th. I cannot regard the anonymous charge in the newspaper to which it refers as an omen of successful misrepresentations concerning the state of things at the University. What is published seems to carry on the face of it an antidote to its purpose. The fever in question, whatever be its cause, is well understood to have no respect of places as ordinarily...
On the rect. of yours of the 26. I had copies of the statement inclosed in it & forwarded one for the Natl. Intelligencer & another for the Enquirer. So exact and authentic a publication on the subject of the Endemic at the University must have a seasonable controul on false or exaggerated accounts from whatever sources proceding. My letter of the Feby. 23. answerd your preceding one. I have...
I have recd. from Mr. Wertenbaker the Resolution of the Faculty of the 12th. inst; suggesting the appointment of a come. to examine & report on the State of the University; and the circumstances connected with the late Sickness The reasons expressed for the measure seem sufficiently to recommend it, and my sanction is given in advance to any selection of person that may be made for the trust....
The youth John Chapman nearly related to our family, having become a Student of the University, and being desirous as his father is, that he may be personally known to you, I can not refuse a line for the purpose. I can not speak of him, from much personal knowledge. But if he inherits, as I trust he does, the estimable qualities of his father, I shall not regret the liberty I am taking. We...
