James Madison to Thomas Jefferson Randolph
|Dear Sir||Montpellier July 14. 1826|
I received by the last mail yours of the 8th inst: The Article bequeathed to me by your Grandfather, had been delivered by Dr Dunglison, and received with all the feelings due to such a token of the place I held in the friendship of one, whom I so much revered & loved, when living, and whose memory can never cease to be dear to me.
I must beg you, my dear Sir, to assure your excellent and dear mother that I shall be happy in every opportunity of proving the value I put on the kind invitation you have communicated, and to be assured yourself of my great & affectionate esteem.
