James Madison Papers

James Madison to Thomas Jefferson Randolph, 16 May 1833

Montpellier May 16. 1833—

Dear Sir

I have just recd. from Doctr. Dunglison a letter of which the inclosed is a copy; and I lose no time in making it known to you, as I am doing to the other Visitors—The following is an extract of a private letter which he also desires may be placed before the Visitors.

"Professor Davis begs me to express to you officially, his desire to occupy my Pavilion and grounds when I leave the University. May I beg you to let his desire be placed before the Visitors at such time as you may think proper.

It will be to my Interest, that he should take possession of it, but this ought not perhaps to be regarded". With great esteem

Do me the favor to forward the enclosed, with the proper destination, as he may be in Nelson or Williamsburgh

James Madison

RC (ViU), enclosing a copy of Robley Dunglison to JM, May 14, 1833.
