James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Daingerfield, 23 January 1832

Montp Jany. 23 1832

Dear Sir

I have just recd. your letter of the 18th.

At the request of Mr. Wm. F Taliaferro, I lately gave, in the form of an affidavit, my testimony in relation to the fact, that your mother was the daughter and only child of Henry Willis. Presuming that the affidavit will be before the Comisser—I think it better to refer you to it than to repeat its contents in any other form. It is not probable that I could be joined in signing a Certificate by any person in this quarter Mrs M. unites with me in all good wishes for yourself & family.

J. M
