James Madison Papers

James Madison to George Tucker, 25 July 1829

Montpr. July 25. 29.

Dear Sir

I learn from Dr. Dunglison, that you left the University, before a letter I wrote a few days ago could have reached you. It inclosed a copy of the original draft of the present Constitution of Virga. which I supposed might not improperly find a place in the Museum. Subjected to the copy was a short note relating to the authorship of the draft. It occurs on reflection yt. it may be as well not to publish the note, particularly in its present form; and I request you the favour of you to erase it, before any use be made of the paper. With great & cordial esteem

J. M
