New York 9 July. 1827
Respected Mr Madison
Desirous of making a few historical memorandums for the use of my children, I take the liberty of requesting you to inform me on what day you was born.
I would not take this liberty but have been unable to ascertain it in this City.
May you enjoy every happiness Compatible With the present State of Society. Your H. Serv.
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
