From James Madison to Richard Peters, 23 February 1822

To Richard Peters

Montpellier Feby. 23. 1822

Dear Sir

I have recd. the copy of Mr. Biddle’s address so obligingly forwarded by you.

I knew before that Mr. B. was a fine writer; but I did not know that he was so accomplished a farmer. His address shews that he is both. I have read it not only with pleasure but with instruction: and I return you my thanks for the opportunity of doing so. Accept in addition to them my cordial regards and my best wishes

James Madison
