James Madison to Daniel Brent, 28 February 1829

Feby. 28—29

Dear Sir

I recd. by the last mail, yours of the 24th. inst: Being restrained by a rule I have found it requisite to apply to other cases from such an interposition as you request, I can only express the esteem & friendly wishes I have always entertained for you. The long continuance in the place you held in the Department of State whilst I was charged with it, is a testimony that speaks for itself. And for the period subsequent to that I could claim less attention than those who witnessed & had the immediate benefit of your services. With this explanation I offer you a reassurance of my esteem, and my friendly salutations

Draft (DLC).
