James Madison Papers

George Joy to James Madison, 7 March 1833

Temple, London 7th March 1833.

Dear Sir,

Should the Bearer Mr. James C. Fuller extend his travels to the peaceful shades of your retreat, you will greatly oblige me by giving him such countenance and advice as you may judge useful to a Gentleman Farmer, of the Society of friends, seeking where in the U. S. he may best pitch his Tent. He goes with his Son to survey the whole ground and judge for himself of the expediency of shipping his property, which is respectable, from this Country to that; and is recommended by a friend whom I am very desirous of serving, and to whom his character and influence have been very useful in his election to the reformed Parliament—

I hope this may find you in perfect health; tho’ I am reminded by my present signature of Senex that you cannot be in the vigour of youth; and am, as I have always been, Dear Sir, Very truly & respectfully Yours

G. Joy

RC (DLC). Enclosed in James C. Fuller to James Madison, 27 May 1833.
