James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Tayloe Lomax, 10 November 1828

Novr. 10. 1828

Dr. Sir

I have just recd. yours dated 8th. post mark 6thBeing absent at the last meeting of the Visitors, I am ignorant of the particular view they had on the order to which you refer Your Statement seems to shew that a deviation from the letter of it, whilst an accomodation to yourself & others, would not be objectionable in any quarter. I forward your letter however to Genl. Cocke my Extive. Colleague, with whom I shall leave the decision on the case; for the double reason, that he must know the object of the order of the Board, and that according to a division of the matters committed to us, the case belongs to his attention.

Draft (DLC).
