James Madison Papers

Nicholas P. Trist to James Madison, 6 September 1830

Sep. 6. ’30

Dear Sir,

Your packet has come safe to hand, & the enclosure for Mr Nicholls shall be delivered by me this afternoon, unless it rains, as now seems probable. Meanwhile, I enclose you a paper containing many details concerning the wonderful event which the inconceivable folly of half a dozen men has brought about. Although it were to be wished that they would have suffered the French People to continue peaceably in the glorious march which was apparent, yet it would seem that their misconduct is really not to have les Suites which were to be apprehended. In haste, Yrs affly

N. P. Trist

As the paper is borrowed from a file, please return it.
