James Madison Papers

From James Madison to James Monroe, 8 November 1820

To James Monroe

Novr. 8. 1820

Dear Sir

I have just recd. a letter from Chs. D. Coxe, appealing to my recollection on certain points, and requesting a line from me to yourself. To let you see what has passed, I inclose his letter to me, and a copy of my answer.1 The former you will be so good as to return. I presume the views of the case to be gathered from authentic sources will2 readily decide the question of his actual official relations. Of his personal qualities and accomplishments, my impressions are favorable: affecty. & respy. Yours

James Madison

RC (DLC: Monroe Papers); draft (DLC). RC docketed by Monroe.
