James Madison Papers

Mathew Carey to James Madison, 13 December 1827

Philada Decr 13. 1827

Dear Sir

I have duly recd your favour of the 7th.

I now send you a dozen Copies of two Essays on a subject of deep importance to the welfare of the Southern states, of which I have printed 1000 for gratuitous distribution. I shall have far more disciples on this Subject, to the South than on the Tariff, although I am fully persuaded my doctrines on the latter Subject are fully as correct as on the former

I also send some others of my recent essays. I have wholly retired from business, & employ all my time in endeavours to promote the national prosperity & happiness as a return for the honourable asylum the Country has afforded me Respectfully, Your obt. hb Servt

Mathew Carey

RC (DLC). Docketed by James Madison.
