James Madison Papers

Edward Coles to James Madison, 20 April 1836

Philadelphia Ap: 20. 1836.

My dear Sir:

A few days after the date of my late letter to you, I heard that Gen: Armstrongs Book was in the press at NewYork, & would soon be published. I heard to day that it had been received here, & went immediately in pursuit of it. I have just procured it & hasten to forward it to you, not having taken time to look into it

I have only time to return you my thanks for your letter of April 10. and to say we are all well, and hope to have the happiness of seeing next month Mr. & Mrs. Stevenson—my Sister Betsy—my Brother Tucker & Wife, &c &c They intend all to come on together, & after staying a few days with us here, we shall all go on together to New York, from which port the Stevensons expect to sail direct to London. Our best regards to Mrs. M. & I am truly & sincerely yours

Ed: Coles
