James Madison Papers

James Madison to Gulian C. Verplanck, 19 January 1828

Montpellier. Jany. 19. 1828

Dear Sir

I have duly received, with your note of the 10th. the little volume entitled "The Talisman", the literary value of which more than corresponds with the tasteful embellishments added by the Arts: Nor is it more recommended to my thankful acceptance by its twofold merits, than by the kind motives to which I owe it. Be pleased to accept Sir the expression of my esteem & my good wishes.

James Madison
