Montpellier Feby. 15. 1834
I have recd. the Copy of your Speech on "the removal of the Deposits," kindly forwarded in pamphlet form. It has certainly treated the questions embraced in it with the distinguished ability which was looked for. Whilst I feel a pleasure in doing it this justice, I must not forget, as I presume you aware, that some of them are not viewed by me in the lights in which your reasonings present them.
On this as on all occasions Mrs. Madison joins in the Cordial regards & good wishes which are tendered to Mrs. Rives & yourself.
