James Madison Papers

William B. Sprague to James Madison, 14 November 1830

Savannah Nov. 14. 1830.

Dear Sir,

Being on a visit at this place from Albany, a friend of mine here, Mr I. K. Tefft has expressed a wish to address you on a particular subject, and as he feels some delicacy in doing it, I have volunteered on the strength of the paper acquaintance with which you have honored me to offer him an introduction. I will only say that he is a gentleman of fine literary taste and of a truly deserving and excellent character; and from what I have experienced of your kindness, I doubt not that you will cheerfully attend to his request. I am, Dear Sir, Most respectfully, Your truly obliged & most obedient,

W B Sprague.
