Washington City Feby 28th 1827.
Mr Hamilton of S. C. has the honor to enclose to Mr Madison that which has scarcely any other value than as furnishing the occasion of his transmitting him a token of his veneration and regard.
Mr Hamilton has the further gratification to acknowledge Mr Madisons favor of the 30th Dec. and thanks him for the kind terms in which he is pleased to speak of a performance which in Mr H.’s estimation derives its principal distinction from Mr Madison’s praise.
