James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Solomon Southwick, 30 May 1816

Albany, May 30, 1816.

Dr. Sir,

When at Washington, last winter Mrs. Madison did me the honour to accept a set of the Christian Visitant. The enclosed Paper will inform her, that the work has "gone to the tomb of the Capulets," or rather the Saints.

I believe Mrs. Madison has not received all the No’s. I have, however, a number of perfect sets, and shall take the liberty of forwarding one, bound appropriately, which I hope she may do me the honour to accept.

Permit me to offer, Sir, for your Lady & yourself the assurance of the best wishes, & highest consideration & respect, of Your very obed’t Serv’t

S. Southwick
