James Madison Papers

A more attentive perusal makes me to think I may have underrated its literary merit, and as the original draft may have been found among Mr Wilson’s papers, it occurs as possible, that it may be included in his Edited works which I have not seen. In this case, the document looses the character of novelty ascribed to it. It is at your service nevertheless

Draft (DLC).
