Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 14 October 1824

October [. . .] 1824

Dr Sir

It is very lucky that Gilmer was so soon able to relieve us from the alarm he had excited. He does not say whether his Mathematician is an Astronomer also; or does he look for one in a professor of Nat: Philoy? If so, his remaining task will be greater than might be wished. His good spirits however authorize ours.

Yrs always & affecly
