James Madison Papers

James Madison to Philip R. Fendall, 12 June 1833

Montpellier June 12. 1833—

Dear Sir

I have recd. your letter of the 6 inst containing among other communications on the part of the Managers of the Colonization Society,   the exhausted state of its Treasury. This is the more to be lamented, as it is in one view an indication favorable to the interesting object for which the Society was formed. I hope the late Circular appeal of the Board of Managers to the friends of that object will not be without effect.

You will be so good as to place the inclosed fifty dollars in the proper depository, and to accept my friendly salutations.

James Madison
