It is a great sacrifice & disappointment to us to pass so near you, without having it in our power to pay our respects to Mrs. Madison & yourself. We are travelling in the public stage, with a brood of little ones doubled in number since we had the pleasure of seeing you, & with a cumbrous accumulation of baggage, which render a deviation from the highway entirely impracticable for us. We are...
Yours of the 28th. Ult: with the accompanying newspaper came duly to hand. I had noticed the "Friend to truth," and was quite at a loss for an author uniting all the qualifications for the task. Your name did not escape me, but I took for granted that your occupations wd. not admit such an avocation. I was impressed also by some remark of the Enquirer, that there had been an interview with the...
The enclosed will give you a juster idea of the real state of things at the Head Quarters of Nullification &c than you can get at second hand.

Ca. are becoming aware of the impositions [pra]ctised upon them as to the peaceableness of the remedy, and there are already some symptoms of a...

I now snatch a moment for the purpose, while waiting for a document which I am to copy. The copy of L’s book, I had no idea of your...
$400 I promise to pay to Dolley P. M. & Mary E. Cutts four hundred dollars, being the sum recd. on their accounts by a Draft from Colo. George Bomford, payable to the order of D. P. Madison on the U. S. Bank at Richmond dated in Octor last. Ms (owned by Charles M. Storey, Boston, Mass.).

Thinking on this subject last night in bed, it occurred to me that the most effectual way to keep these madmen in check, would be for the upper country in S. C.—(the only part of the state which is self-sufficient for the purposes of internal security, and which is decidedly against nullification) to say to the others, we here part company. If you choose to pursue this course, we will not; and...
The Copy of "Dermot MácMorrogh or the Conquest of Ireland" which I owe to your politeness, has been duly received. Having never myself been favored with the inspiration of the Muses, I am the less qualified to test it in others. Confiding nevertheless in the pleasure afforded by the perusal of the Poem, I will not withold the expression of that feeling, as an offering, be its worth but what it...
I return you many thanks for the warm cap which came safe to hand a few days ago: It is as comfortable as it may be fashionable, which is more than can be said of all fashions. I recd. at the same time a duplicate of the excellent pair of gloves, with which Mrs. Stevenson, allow me rather to say, my Cousin Sally has favored me. Being the work of her own hands they will impart the more warmth...
