James Madison to Alexander Garrett, 4 March 1828

Montpellier Mar. 4. 1828.

Dear Sir

I have recd. from a gentleman in Kentucky, who wishes to back an application to the Legislature, for aid to the Transylvania University, with the examples of other States, a request of a statement of the grants made to the University of Virginia, and to any other Collegiate Institutions within the State. May I ask the favor of you to guard me against any inaccuracies, by noting to me the amounts & the dates of the public grants to the University, and if convenient, to add any like grants to any other Collegiate Establishments under the Republican Government of the State With very sincere esteem & regard

James Madison

RC, with amounts on the same page (ViU).
