James Madison Papers

James Madison to James Monroe, 16 June 1828

Montpellier June 16. 1828

Dear Sir

I have already apprised you of your mistake of the day for the meeting of the Visitors, which is the 10th not the 15th. of July. I now wish you to know that we propose to pay a visit to Col: Lindsay, on our way, and on the following day, another. This will make it necessary to set out on Monday the 8th. You must not fail therefore to be here on the saturday or sunday preceding, and as much sooner as you can make convenient. I am sure you will readily join in the call on our old friend, who is I understand entirely recovered from the accident which afflicted him. And we can keep together thereafter, unless it be not in accord with your arrangements. Should this find you in N. York as is presumed, present our best regards to Mrs. Monroe who we hope is enjoying improved health in the happy Society of her friends, to all of whom also, we beg to be presented in the proper manner. Affecy.

James Madison
