James Madison Papers

James Madison to James Monroe, 31 January 1824

Montpellier Jany. 31. 1824

Dear Sir

Col: Armstead Holmes is on a visit to Washington with views which will be best explained by himself. As a mark of my respect, I cannot withold a line which he will hand to you, altho’ I am aware that I can add nothing to your knowledge of his public and private worth, or to your disposition to befriend him in any way that may be permitted by other obligations. Should these be found no bar to a success that will be advantageous to him. I shall be of the number who will feel a pleasure in the result. With the highest respect
