James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Charles Yancey, [4 January 1823]

To Charles Yancey

[4 January 1823]


I have recd. your letter of the 21st inclosing a prospectus of a Newspaper about to be printed at Richmond. I have for a considerable time found it convenient rather to reduce than extend my receipts of Newspapers; and have no farther lost sight of that object, than by taking, in one or two instances a new Gazette for a single year. Under that limitation the paper in question may be forwarded to me; for which the payment in advance is inclosed, & a return of a rect requested. With friendly respects


Draft (DLC). Undated; conjectural date assigned based on comparison with Yancey to JM, 21 Dec. 1822 and 9 Jan. 1823. Filed after Samuel L. Gouverneur to JM, 2 Jan. 1833, in the Madison Papers, Library of Congress.
