James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Tayloe Lomax, 10 September 1827

Montpr. Sepr. 10. 27

Dr Sir

I have recd. yours of the 6th. on the non-descript case of Mr. Egan & his associate. If this attendance on his terms be not in the character of Students of the University, or Students of a religious School within or adjoining its precincts, no provision of the enactments can be applicable to it, and the peculiarity of the case seems to take it out of the reason of the rule on the subject of dress. The decision of the Faculty whatever it be will be satisfactory to me.

I am much gratified at the prospect of an increased no. of Students. I hope your School may have a full share of them. With great esteem & regard

J. M.
