James Madison Papers

James Madison to Nicholas P. Trist, 30 April 1828

Montpellier Apl. 30. 1828

Dear Sir

I have just recd. from Mr Gilmer the desired copy of the Power of Attorney to his brother, and inclose a few lines thanking him for his prompt attention to the request conveyed to him. Not knowing the County in which the post office lies, I beg the favor of you to add it on the superscription as there may be other "Libertys", leading the letter astray. With that addition, please to have it handed to the mail at Charlottesville.

In return for the Gazette sent me, I enclose several of late date from London, containing things interesting perhaps to your friends, tho’ nothing which will not probably appear more fully, with additions of later date, in republications from foreign Journals brought by the same arrivals. With affectionate respects

James Madison
