James Madison Papers

James Madison to Edward Coles, 23 February 1827

Montpr. Feby. 23. 1827

My dear Sir

I have this moment recd. your kind letter of the 17th. You seem to have attached more importance to my letter than it required. It would nevertheless have been very grateful to us to have had 2 or 3 days carved for us out of your allowance for Washington. We thank you much for your readiness to be of service to us at Philada. The best you render will be that of increasing the pleasure of your promised visit, by having our son for your companion. Give our love to him and so say to him. Let us hear from you, as soon as you can make it convenient and in the mean time be assured of our most affectionate regards

James Madison
