James Madison Papers

Gulian C. Verplanck to James Madison, 10 January 1828

Washington, House of Rep. Jan 10th. 1828

G. C. Verplanck presents his compliments to Mr Madison and requests his acceptance of a little volume recently published at NewYork. Though written under an assumed name of a single author it is in fact the summer amusement of three gentlemen whose ordinary studies and occupations are of a graver cast, to which the Publisher has thought fit to add some embellishments of the arts. Whatever may be it’s literary merit it affords a pleasing specimen of the progress of fine & mechanical arts among us. It is presented as a slight mark of the very sincere respect entertained by the authors for the character & services of Mr Madison

RC (DLC). Docketed by James Madison.
