James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Love, 10 January 1814

From John Love

Washn. Jany. 10th. 1814


An appology is necessary from me, for having by letter some time since troubled you on a subject which a moments reflection after leaving Alexana. satisfyed me I had improperly offered to your attention.1 It may have arisen from having understood that Mr Jefferson had offered Colo. Gilpin the post Masters place when He was appointed. Having within a few days heard of the death of Colo Gilpin I have applied to the proper authority, with every prospect of success which can arise from the most satisfactory recommendations.

Please accept of this appology & my most earnest wishes for the health and happiness of Mrs. Madison & yourself. With the greatest respect I remain Sir your Most Obt Servant

Jn Love
