Thomas Jefferson Randolph to James Madison, 20 December 1830

Edgehill Decr. 20 1830

Dear sir

Mr Ruggi has called on me with an idea that he might be employed in compleating the Portico of the Rotunda as a means of earning a sum of money sufficient to carry him back to Europe. I have attempted to explain to him without effect that the Executive committee have not the power Should your opinion be different I will cheerfully acquiesce in it Yours respectfully

Th J Randolph

RC (ViHi).
