James Madison to Thomas Jefferson Randolph, 4 April 1829

Apl. 4. 1829

Dear Sir

I have recd. a letter from [Giles] containing a paragraph, of which a copy is enclosed. Intending, soon to write to him, I will thank you for a few lines, enabling [me] to say what is due on the points, he refers to.

Having seen no acct. of the death of your young kinsman, spoken of in your late letter, we hope he has had a better fate than you dreaded; and that no obstacle exists to the return of Mrs. R. & Mrs. T. without danger or the apprehension of it Health & all other good wishes

Draft (DLC).
