James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Charles Thomson, 13 December 1808

Harriton Decr. 13. 1808

Dear Sir

Thomas Amies the bearer of this is the son of one of our capital manufacturers of paper. His father has within about a mile of me three paper mills at work. One of them is under the Superintendance of this young man, who by his prudent conduct close attention to his business & discreet management in discharging the trust reposed in him bids fair to be an eminently useful member of society.

By him I send you the two first volumes of my translation of the Bible. The two other volumes, which will complete the work, will I expect be printed in two or three months, at fartherst. As soon as they are ready I will forward them to you and crave your Acceptance of the copy as a testimony of the sincere esteem and regard of your old and constant friend

Chas. Thomson
