James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Charles Thomson, 4 February 1809

Feby. 4. 1809

Dear Sir

I received your favour of the 22d. of Decr. and thank you for the copy of the documents which you were so kind as to send me

I had such a share in the struggle for the independence of our country that I cannot be indifferent to its preservation. We have insidious, and dangerous enemies to guard against both foreign & domestic. However I hope the same kind over-ruling Providence which conducted us through the arduous struggle will still continue to preserve. To his special guidance I most sincerely commend you. I herewith send you the 3d. vol of my translation with the ground plot of Ezechiels temple drawn on a Scale of 40 cubits to an inch as from a Surveyors field book so that I think it is correct. The 4th. & last vol the N T is in great forwardness

That health and happiness may attend you is the sincere wish of yr. obd and affectionate St.

C T.
