James Madison Papers

James Madison to Nicholas P. Trist, 26 July 1828

Montpellier July 26. 1828

Dear Sir

I have recd. from a Mr. A. ____ Wigfall, of S. Carolina, who appears to have been a Student at our University, a letter which I can the better answer, after some knowledge of his character & conduct whilst there. Be so good as to collect it for me, as soon as may be convenient. I send you a few London Gazettes, which after looking into, you can hand to Dr. Dunglison.

We got home the day we left the University, in as good plight as the great heat would admit. Present us affectionately to all at Monticello, & accept for yourself our cordial regards & good wishes.

James Madison
