James Madison to Haym M. Solomon, 6 February 1830

Montpr. Feby 6 1830

Dear Sir

Your letter of the 22d. Ult. has been duly recd. In answer to its enquiries, I am to note that the persons referred to were at the time (1782) Delegates from Virga. to the Revolutionary Congress, the addition of "Junior" to my name being occasioned by its sameness with that of my father the living. The transactions shewn by the papers you enclosed were means of effectuating remittances from the State for the support of the Delegates and the Agency of your father therein, was selected on account of the respectability and confidence which he enjoyed among those best acquainted with him. I return the papers with an offer of my friendly respects & good wishes

Draft (DLC).
