James Madison Papers

William C. Rives to James Madison, 1 August 1833

Castle-Hill Aug. 1st ’33.

My dear sir,

Permit me to introduce to you my friend Dr. R. C. Mason, a gentleman of distinguished intelligence & patriotism residing in the county of Fairfax, who is desirous of paying his respects to you, & at the same time, of presenting to you his friend Mr. R<...> of Philadelphia. Dr. Mason, you will doubtless recollect, is the gentleman who received so flattering a testimony of the high estimation of his fellow-citizens in the large vote, which had well nigh returned him, in the late congressional election, the representative of the Loudoun District, in opposition to the gentleman who has so long represented that District in the House of Representatives. I am, my dear sir, with the greatest respect, your most obt. serv.

W C Rives,
