James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Norvell, 20 June 1826

Montpr. June 20. 1826

Dr Sir

I have, just recd. yours of the 14th. and inclose $15. in discharge of the acct. transmitted.

When I became a subscriber for the Franklin Gazette My letter to Mr Bache mentioned that it was a departure from a rule I had found it expedient to lay down, and that my subscription was not a permanent one. As no special request however has been made for a discontinuance of the paper, I very cheerfully remit payment for the whole period of your acct. But I avail myself of the occasion to give effect to my original purpose, by requesting that my name on the list may be noted for erasure after May. 1827. I thank you Sir for your very kind wishes, and pray you to accept a sincere return of mine


I observe that a rect. is subjoined to yr. acct but it will be a Satisfaction to know by a line that there has been no miscarriage of the payment
