Philadelphia Sepr. 4: 1831
Be pleased to accept my best acknowledgments for the memoranda concerning the excellent Bishop Madison. I found them on my table, on my return from a journey, a few days ago. A sketch has been sent to Boston for the Encyclopædia Americana, but I fear it will be too late. I shall use the materials for another form of publication, & will then return them to you.
I unite with the whole mass of Americans, in sincerely wishing you many additional years of health & felicity. Your obliged & very respectful servant—
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
