James Madison Papers

James Madison to Samuel P. Walker, Jr., 14 January 1830

Richmond Jany 14. 1830

Dr. Sir

A rule which I have found it expedient to impose on myself not permitting me to comply with the request in your letter of the 10th. inst; I can only express the pleasure with which I observe the high testimony borne to your promising talents and worth; a pleasure which is enhanced by your relation to an illustrious patriot, in the public veneration for whose memory, my personal share is so truly sincere. With my respects & best wishes

J. M.
