James Madison Papers

From James Madison to John George Jackson, 29 January 1808

Jany 29. 1808

My dear Sir

Your letters by the mail of last night, & the preceding week recd. at the same time, have relieved us in some degree from the distress produced by that of anterior date; but still leave us full of anxiety. We sympathize most truly with your griefs, and trust you will be able to do so with our hopes. Mrs. M. writes a few lines which I inclose. I have nothing to say as to news. Rose has been with us some little time; but the rule which I need not explain, applied to such cases, imposes silence in the present stage of the business of his mission. Yrs. with affecte. wishes for Mrs. J. & yourself
