J. Madison has duly recd the copy of Mr. Grimke’s address before the Literary & Philosophical Society of S. Carolina politely forwarded to him. Altho he is not prepared to accede to some of the opinions contained in it, he tenders his thanks to the Author, for the pleasure afforded by the learned & interesting views which characterize the discourse. Draft (DLC) ; copy (MiU-C) .
I recd. by the last mail your letter of the 9th. I am truly sorry for the distressing situation which it describes; But the considerations which were formerly mentioned to you, as controuling my sympathises, instead of abatement have acquired additional force: and limit my answer to your request, to a renewal of the good wishes, which unavailing as they are, are all that I can offer. With...
Your favor of June 5. did not arrive before the Visitors who met in July had closed their Session & left the University. I may safely take on me however, to say that they will feel great obligation for your kind efforts to find a proper Professor for the vacant Chair. In the uncertainty of obtaining, without the University itself, a Successor to Mr Key, the Visitors thought it best to...
Yours of the 3d inst: reached me by the mail of yesterday, inclosing one from my Brother in which he directs me to return you the amount of your check, what I would now do if the sum was not unfortunately an inconvenient one for a letter—Mr & Mrs Stevenson, my sister Betsey & myself propose however, on our return from the Springs, to accept of your kind Invitation to Montpellier, where a more...
After your great kindness in the loan you were so kind as to make me, it is imposing on generous feelings to make any further request—But at this time I assure you I am in distress—We owe twenty five dollars for house rent, and unless we can raise it our little furniture (a present to Mrs Scott) will be sacraficed—If God spares my life, it shall with the other, be faithfully repaid— Often have...
Your letter informing the Visitors that you could not join them at their late meeting, was recd. by all of them with the particular feelings of regret excited by the cause of the disappointment. I hope the indisposition was transient, and that your health is now in a satisfactory State. You will have understood that Mr. Key persisted in his resignation, & that Mr. Bonnycastle has taken his...
I find by a letter from Col. Peyton of Richmond that he is on a Northern tour which will carry him to Boston. I mention the circumstances that in case you have any communications you wish to make, for which he would be a conveyance preferable to that of the mail, they may be put into his hands. He will readily take charge of them; and being a particular acquaintance of Mrs. Randolph, now with...
You will perceive by the enclosed letter from Mr Southard, that, it was our calculation to have had the pleasure to call on you, on our way to the Sulphur Spring. I reached here this morning and Judge Brooke was just arrived in Mr. Southard’s carriage which will force me to go on with him this evening to Gordonsville. I regret most sincerely it will not be in my power now to visit yourself &...
Yours of the 30th. was recd. yesterday. I am sorry for the trouble you have taken in searching for the morceau in question. Having observed that the whole of Franklin’s Works published, were in the Library of the University, I took for granted that it might be easily sought for; and if there, found either in the biographical part, or under the miscellaneous head. It now occurs, that the...
Since my return home, I have received the letter from Mr. Gallatin of which a copy is enclosed. Be so good as to forward it to Mr. Cabell, with a request that he send it to Mr. Johnson, who from Richmond will easily give it conveyance to Mr. Loyall. I will make known its contents to Mr. Monroe and Mr. Breckenridge. I have heard nothing from any other quarter on the subject of the vacant Chair....
