James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Tayloe Lomax, 30 January 1830

Montpr. Jany 30. 1830

Dear Sir

I recd last evening your letter of the 25th. and sincerely regret both on acct. of the University & the public the final determination which will separate you from the former. The regret will I am sure be equally felt by my Colleagues. I hope it can be alleviated by the advantages ensuing to yourself.

On the subject of your continuance in the professorship, untill the end of the Session, with a dispensation as proposed to hold the Spring terms of the Court I can only say for myself, that the arrangement appears preferable to the alternative State of things, and that I presume it will be so viewed by the other Visitors. With best wishes for your health & every other happiness

J. M.
