Permit me, tho’ at this late hour, to express my happy feelings at the issue of the Election of Chief & second Majestrates, and the consequent changes in the principal Executive Offices, which promise Us a wise, Constitutional, & Eocomical [ sic ] Administration of the Federal Government for at least four years; & I hope much longer, which will be the case, if the Republican Citizens do not...

RC (University of Virginia Library). This is apparently the only one of the many letters written by which still exists in original manuscript form ( Pendleton to JM, 27 August 1780 , headnote). How it alone survived is problematical. Perhaps the neatly printed “To James Madison Nov: 20th: 1780.” near its bottom margin was added by an autograph collector to whom JM gave the letter.

Letter not found. 7 April 1787. Pendleton had noted on the cover of JM’s letter to him of 24 February 1787 , “Answd.
