To James Madison
Friday Aug. 26.
Th:J. To J.M.
Will you come and sit an hour before dinner to-day? Also take soup with me tomorrow?
Since writing the above the President has been here, and left L’Enfant’s plan, with a wish that you and I would examine it together immediately, as to certain matters, and let him know the result. As the plan is very large, will you walk up and examine it here?
