James Madison Papers

Alexander Garrett to James Madison, 10 March 1828

Charlottesville 10th March 1828

Dear Sir.

An apology, is due for my seeming neglect, in not sooner answering your letter of the 4th. instant, and that apology I hope may be found, in the fact, that your letter reached me, on the monday morning of our last quarterly court, which set the whole week, affording me not a moment to devote to any other business but that of the court, since its adjournment, I have examined into the various grants of money to the University by the Legislature of Virginia; and agreeably to your request now send you enclosed, the result, hoping it may reach you in time to answer the purposes you wish—I do not recollect; neither have I been able to find, any grant of money by the Legislature, to any other Collegiate institution within the State. With the most profound respect, I am Dr. Sir Your. Obt. Servant

Alex: Garrett

RC (DLC). Docketed by James Madison.
