From Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 23 February 1795

To James Madison

Feb. 23. 95.

Th:J. to J.M.

I inclose two letters to the President and Secretary of state open for your perusal and consideration. I pray you to bestow thought on the subject, and if you disapprove it, return me my letters, undelivered, by next post. If you approve of them, stick a wafer in them and have them delivered. I also put under your cover a letter to the Fresco painter from whom you inclosed me one. His not having furnished me with his address obliges me to give you this trouble. Nothing new. Adieu affectionately.

RC (DLC: Madison Papers). PrC (DLC). Enclosures: (1) TJ to George Washington, 23 Feb 1795. (2) TJ to Edmund Randolph, 23 Feb. 1795. Enclosed in TJ to David Rittenhouse, 24 Feb. 1795.
