James Madison Papers

John S. Barbour to James Madison, 31 March 1830

Washn. March 31st. 1830

Dear Sir

The day that I wrote you last an urgent & unlooked for call to visit my sick wife carried me to Culpeper and upon returning I found that Mrs Barbour had left this City for Orange. If it meet your approbation I will pass into the hands of Colo P. P. Barbour the 100$. mentioned & he will either find an opportunity for conveying it to you or can do so in person when he returns. I have mentioned the subject to him & he will be happy to receive & obey your orders.

I have taken the liberty to send you under cover the So. Carolina exposition & protest. It presents a new view of a very complex question & may on that account be interesting to you– With cordial wishes & best Respects Yrs

J. S. Barbour
