James Madison Papers

Charles J. Ingersoll to James Madison, 16 November 1831

Philadelphia 1[6] Nov 31

Dear Sir

If the topics treated in the Address herewith are dealt with so as to meet your approbation it will be to my mind one of the surest proofs of their force. That you wi[ll] not condemn the calm and forbearing temper of the argument I feel confident

I by no means despair yet of the pleasure so long promised myself of visiting you at Montpellier, but thus far one prevention or other has always oc[c]urred

I beg you, my dear Sir, to recieve renewed assurances of constant reverence and undiminished attachment

C J Ingersoll
