James Madison Papers

James Madison to Lilburn P. Perry, 11 March 1830

Montpellier March 11th. 1830.

I have recd., Sir, your letter of the 8th. inst.– Not withstanding the peculiarity of the case you state, I do not understand that it can be relieved by any dispensing power in the Rector. If such an interposi[t]ion be admissable, it must rest with the Executive Committee of which Genl. Cocke & Mr. T. J. Randolph are a majority; and I leave it with them to decide on your request, if you think it proper to address it to them. With friendly respects

J— M
