James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Thomas Jefferson, 19 May 1825

To Thomas Jefferson

Montpellier May 19. 1825

Dear Sir

I did not receive yours of the 12th.1 in time to be answered by the last mail. My thoughts, as heretofore intimated, had been turned to Judge Dade for the Law Chair; and with the recommendatory opinions which you enumerate, I cannot hesitate to concur in the offer of it as proposed. I concur also in the issuing of a Commission on the written sanction of the Visitors without the formality of a Special Meeting. With affece. respects

James Madison
