James Madison Papers

James Madison to Charles Stuart Waugh, 30 October 1827

Montpr. ocr. 30. 1827

Dr Sir.

Your letter of the 25th. was duly handed to me by Mr. Conway. The view you give of the state of your family, and the anxiety you express, to improve it could not fail to excite my sympathy & good wishes. I am precluded nevertheless from the step you ask from me, by a rule wch. the frequency of such applications, as well as other considerations have obliged me to adopt. I must refer you therefore to the friendly interpositions of others not under the circumstances by which I am controuled. With friendly respects

James Madison
