James Madison Papers

David Michie to James Madison, 16 December 1831

Buck Island Decr. 16th. 1831

Dear Sir,

I have thought the enclosed paper might give you perhaps, a better acct. of the Belgium & Holland question, & a more detailed statement of the fate of the reform bill, than you may, in other papers, have seen. I therefore send it to you—Should I get any pamphlets or papers from Washington or else where that I may think interesting, I will take the liberty of sending them to you, likewise under the hope of contributing to your amusement this Winter, which from the present specimen, promises to be a severe one indeed—It would have given me great pleasure to have called on my return from Washington, but business at Norfolk & Richmond obliged me that way & deprived me of that Satisfaction—

How is your health this cold weather? The Ink freezes as I write—I hope it has not increased your Rheumatizm—With great respect & Esteem Your friend

David Michie
