I have your letter & am glad to find, that the information you request, will have probably reached you thro’ the Newspaper which contain it as notified from the authoritative source. I have only therefore to express my hopes, that your exertions on the occasion have the success they merit, & tender the respects I pray you to accept Draft (DLC) .

J. Madison with his best respects to Mr. Minor thanks him for his Address on "Education &c". before "The Institute of Education of Hampden Sidney College". He has read it with the pleasure which could not fail to be imparted, by the instructive and impressive views it takes of a subject vitally important to our popular Institutions. FC (DLC) .
I have recd. yours of the 27th. Ulti. Should the whole of my little stock of Coke Devon do well you can be furnished here in the spring with a pair. Should the Bull Calf fail, you can be accomodated at least, by temporary management that will give you the initiating service of a grown Bull. It is desirable, if convenient; that you should replace your lost female from another source; that being...
It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge your kind favour of this day, the payment of twenty doll : on your subscription to the Coll’g We hope not to fail in our present struggle, but still are quite liable to—Yours, Sir With the deepest Respect— RC (NjP) .
I received a few days ago under a blank cover a copy of Mr. Binney’s Eulogy on Chief Justice Marshall: a slip of paper being inserted; with the printed words "from the select and Common Councils of the City of Philadelphia". As the communication has the appearance of being somewhat circular, it may be a question whether an acknowledgment of the favour be, or be not due or expected. I wish not...
Your letter of Novr. 17. having been directed to Petersburg which is very distant from me, was not recd. till yesterday. I am sorry that I cannot give to it the answer that would be most agreeable. Unwilling as I am to obtrude my private affairs on others, the occasion requires me to say that for a number of years past the drafts of various denominations on my resources, have so far exceeded...

Your letter on the subject of Mr. Pemberton has not passed into oblivion; but I am sensible that the lapse of time since it was received exposes it to that appearance. For my silence, I must plead my growing dislike to the pen, and the condition of my fingers, which imposes on me often, as in the present case, the unwelcome task of dictating to borrowed one’s. Though I am aware of your junior...
I have recd. your letter by Henry. You mistake much in supposing my health to be such as when you last saw me; my debility & the effect of Rheumatism on my limbs scarcely permitting me to walk across the room; and the condition of my fingers obliging me often as in the present case to dictate to another pen, rather than force a use of my own. The appearance of the fly in the Wheat, and the...
It has happened that one of my Devon young Cows has produced a female Calf, and that the Calf of the other, tho’ a male, was dropt in so feeble and infirm a State as to remain helpless for some time. He is however gaining the use of its limbs and is otherwise improving; but with some uncertainty as to its matured character, it has also to encounter the season of Winter so unfavorable to very...
