James Madison Papers

James Madison to Alexander Garrett, 11 December 1828

Montpellier Decr. 11. 1828

Dear Sir

I have just recd. yours of the 8th. & thank you for your attention to mine of the 5th. In justice to Mr. Trist, I must correct my error in saying he had informed me that he had written to you on the subject of the acct. from July to December 1827. On recurring to his letter I find it says only that he had written to Charlottesville. It was but my inference only & that, as appears, an erroneous one, that he had written to you. With cordial esteem

James Madison
