James Madison Papers

James Madison to Edward Coles, 25 February 1827

Montpr. Feby. 25. 1827

Dear Sir

Tho’ desirous of reducing the number of my literary subscriptions which had swoln to an inconvenient amount, I was tempted by the Review about to appear (March 1.) under the auspices of Mr. Walsh to have my name put on the list. As I find by your letter that you will certainly be in Phila. I trouble you with the inclosed note $10. five of which you will oblige my by applying in discharge of that engagement: With the remaining five be so good as to pay my subscription to the National Gazette, taking a rect. for the year ensuing the last payment. I have nothing to add at present but the affectionate regards, of which you need not be assured
