John Marshall to James Madison, 30 November 1829

Richmond Novr. 30th. 1829

Dear Sir

I have just received information of the death of my friend Judge Washington. I need not say how much I regret his loss. The official and friendly connexion between us would I think make it improper in me immediately to receive company. For this reason I have felt my self compelled to embrace the embarrassing part of withdrawing the invitation I gave for wednesday next. With great and respectful esteem I am dear Sir your obedt.

J Marshall
