James Madison to Joseph Blunt, 19 September 1830

Sepr. 19. 1830

Dr. Sir

I have recd. your letter of & with it a copy of the 3d. Vol of the Anual Register. As I was not a subscriber, it was my intention, as I intimated, to return the 2. precedings Vols. with wch I had been favored, as they might be useful to you in making up sets. Inattention in part, wth. a disappointed hope of findg. a private conveyance, must explain if it shd. not apologize for, the omission. I have in fine concluded to retain the 3 Vols. and inclose $15. the payment for them with a tender of my respects, & my best wishes for the success of the valuable work you have undertaken
