James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Cabell Rives, 2 December 1828

Montpellier Decr. 2. 1828

Dear Sir

On turning to my bundles of Old Pamphlets, I picked out the inclosed duplicate Nos. of Debates in Congress during a period for which copies are now scarce. I am sorry I could not find more. They may perhaps be of some aid in making up complete sets as opportunities occur.

We had the pleasure of Mrs. Rives’ company till yesterday morning, when she left us in the good health she brought with her. With great esteem & cordial salutations

James Madison
