George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Edmund Randolph, 21 October 1794

From Edmund Randolph


Philadelphia October 21. 1794. 1 ‘o’clock


I have received a letter from Wilson Nicholas, who expresses the most unqualified resentment against the insurgents, as being the sense of Albemarle county in Virginia.1

Mr Madison & his new associate2 arrived here last night. I have not had any conversation with him of a pointed or very interesting kind. I only discover an absolute detestation of the insurrection, and a full Opinion, that the outrages against the laws deserved every animadversion. I have the honor, sir, to be with great respect and affectionate attachment yr mo. ob. serv.

Edm: Randolph


1This letter has not been identified.

2Randolph probably was referring to James Madison’s wife, Dolley Madison, whom he married in September.
