James Madison Papers

James Madison to Nicholas P. Trist, 11 August 1828

Montpellier Aug. 11. 1828.

Dear Sir

I have just recd. a letter from Mr. Monroe, from which I find that he wishes a copy of the Resolution appointing him & Mr. Johnson a Committee to report a plan of police for the university. Be so good as to send him a copy; apprizing him at the same time of the day, the 1st. of Ocr., fixed for the next meeting of the Visitors, which he seems to have forgotten.

Mr. Tracie, who has been confined by sickness at Washington, requests that his recommendatory papers may be restored to him. Inclose them to me if you please, and I will forward them.

Docr. G. Harrison accepts the temporary appointment to the Chair of Antient Languages; and I have sent him a commission, without waiting for the Resolution authorizing it, which it might have been well to have before me at the time. Health & all other blessings
