Montpellier Feb. 18. 1835

J. Madison with his respectful compliments to Mr. Van Buren, returns his thanks for the Copy of Mr Adams’ Oration on the "Life & character of Lafayette." It is a signal illustration of the powers & resources of the Orator; and will deservedly aid in making more known, a Character, which will be the more admired, the more it is known.
