James Madison Papers

From James Madison to James Breckinridge, 25 January 1820

To James Breckinridge

Dcr. [January] 25. 1820

Dear Sir

I have recd your two favors of the 16 & 17th and am glad that no inconvenience will result from what has happened in the case of the Clover seed. I would have greatly preferred yours to that which I have substituted, not liking altogether the appearance of the latter, and on that account having enlarged the quantity which is to be sown. Friendly respects & best wishes

James Madison

RC (owned by Marshall B. Coyne, Washington, D.C., 1980). JM incorrectly dated the letter “Dcr. 25. 1820”; date corrected here on the basis of Breckinridge to JM, 16 and 17 Jan. 1820.
