Philip Doddridge to James Madison, 1 June 1832

Washington. 1 June 1832.

Dear Sir.

By tomorrows mail I will forward you a copy of my Speech in the Case of Houston <B>ayard with a breach of the privileges of the house of Representatives—I will thank you to prepare it, if not too troublesome, & would feel gratified with your opinion—

You will perceive in what manner I have attributed to you, the authorship of the Judiciary act of 1789—A letter from the Hon. David < >ggett of Massachusetts to a member has been shewn me, claiming the authorship of that act for the late Abner. Ellsworth. If I have been in an error your explanation will be considered a special favor Very Respectfuly yours

P Doddridge
