James Madison to Alexander Scott, 14 August 1827

Montpr. Augst. 14. –27

Dear Sir

I recd. by the last mail your letter of the 9th. I am truly sorry for the distressing situation which it describes; But the considerations which were formerly mentioned to you, as controuling my sympathises, instead of abatement have acquired additional force: and limit my answer to your request, to a renewal of the good wishes, which unavailing as they are, are all that I can offer. With friendly respects

J. M.
