From James Madison to Richard Rush, 15 February 1815

To Richard Rush

[Washington,] 15 February 1815

The occasion which led to your favor of this morning merits all our congratulations, and I heartily join in those you have expressed. The terms of the peace will I hope be satisfactory to our Country. With the events of the war, they can not fail to command the respect of every other. … Be so good as to return the two papers after a leisurely perusal. The newspaper is the latest that has arrived.

Printed extract of RC (Rosenbach Company, The History of America in Documents … Part Two [Richmond, Va., 1950], item 336). Docketed by Rush: “In reply to the note I had sent him, on the news we had just received of the treaty of Ghent.”
