James Madison Papers

James Madison to Reynolds Chapman, 23 October 1831

ocr. 23. 1831

Dear Sir

I return the papers accompanying yours of yesterday. I have run over tho’ very hastily, the prepared decree other objects happening to press on my attentions. As it presents the view taken of the case by Mr. Barbour & Mr. Patton, with your accordance, I should very reluctantly suggest changes if any occurred. I have taken for granted that my account must be settled with the Commisioners. But as I wish to make it, in every respect what it ought to be, I will take advantage of the kind disposition you express, to ask the aid of your judgement in making it, and with that view, that you will spare me a few hours of your time, as soon as it may be convenient. Come prepared to dine & pass the day with us.

Draft (DLC).
