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.
1. This letter has not been identified.
2. Randolph probably was referring to James Madison’s wife, Dolley Madison, whom he married in September.
