Jany. 28. 1830
Your favor of Novr. 30 was duly recd. at Richmond, whence it would have been acknowledged, but for the authorized hope that an extension of your contemplated trip, would have afforded the pleasure of a personal opportunity. I now beg leave to express the thanks due for your attention to the pecuniary items on acct. of the University, and to assure you, that the wish that we may once more see one another can not be more sincerely felt on your part than it is on mine. It affords Mrs. Madison & myself much gratification that Mrs Brown’s health, of which we had from time to time unfavorable accounts, is now in a course of improvement. We anxiously wish its entire reestablisht. and indulge a hope, that when you leave Philada. your route will yield us the pleasure of repeating at our domicil, the cordial regards & good wishes, which we now pray you both to accept.
