James Madison Papers

John Coalter to James Madison, 23 November 1828

Richmond Novr 23. 1828


I have been much concerned to learn, within a day or two past, that the Governor has not yet received from you the Copy of the proceedings of the Convention at Charlottesville, & that consequently it may not appear in his Message to the Legislature—

I have sent him a Message, & shall write to him, that I take it for granted your Letter has miscarried, & indeavour to prevail on him to consider it as received. I fear however he will not do so—

I beg you to loose no time in making the Communication to him—

It is so near dark that I hardly know what I have written—Be pleased to present me respectfully to Mrs. Madison—Your obt Servant

Jno. Coalter
