To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 31 May 1808

May 31. 1808

Dear Sir

I have just recd. by the Bearer the inclosed letter. As I understand that the writer Mr. V. and Mr. Dunbar, are both of them acquainted with the established course in such cases, I fulfill their expectations as well as keep within the rule of propriety, in merely saying that I believe both to be men of respectable characters; and consequently not excluded from the ordinary indulgence grantable under general regulations.

With perfect respect & attachment I remain yrs

James Madison
