James Madison Papers

James Madison to Richard Smith, 4 August 1828

Montpellier Augst. 4. 1828

Dear Sir

The Bank having now received the final payment for the House and Lotts in Washington which I purchased from it, I have to request that the proper deed of conveyance to me be executed & recorded in the manner conformable to the Law of the place. Should any expence in so doing, devolve on me, be so good as to let me know it.

I cannot let this occasion pass, Sir, without acknowledging, the kind attentions to my concerns with the Bank which I have experienced from you, and offering the sincere thanks due for them, with assurances of my cordial esteem & my friendly wishes.
