James Madison Papers

James Madison to Ferdinand R. Hassler, 25 September 1828

Montpellier Sepr. 25. 1828

Dear Sir

Your letter of the 8th. with two copies of your "Elements of Geometry" came to hand when a spell of sickness prevented me from making the proper acknowledgements. I now beg of you to accept them, particularly for the copy allotted to myself. That for the University has been duly forwarded and will there find a better capacity than I possess to do justice to the work. I can only repeat to you the good wishes I feel that all your Scientific labours may be well rewarded. With esteem & friendly respects

James Madison
