James Madison Papers

James Madison to Edward D. White, 14 February 1832

Montpr., Feby. 14. 1832

J. M. presents the thanks due for the "Remarks upon a Plan for the total abolition of slavery in the United States," with which he has been favored

The views it takes of the subject, are very interesting; but an error is noticed in ascribing to him "the opinion Congs possesses Constl. powers to appropriate public funds to aid in this redeeming project of Colonizing the colored people". He has wished the powers of Congs. to be enlarged on this subject.
