Extract from James Madison to James Monroe

Much however will necessarily depend on the approaching election I have not seen Jefferson and have thought it best to present him no opportunity of protesting to his friend against being embarked in the contest. Whether he will get a majority of vote is uncertain. I am be no means sanguine. His enemies are as indefatigable as they are malignant.
