MVB to [James] Madison, 3 March 1827

Senate Chamber

Dr Sir,

I am not certain whether I did what I intended to do last Fall. That is making my sincere acknowledgements to you for your kindness in relation to my request. I have thought it advisable to leave the matter until the next session, at the commencement of which I shall enter in earnest upon the subject. If in the meantime you can conveniently say any thing to me that will be of service you will increase the obligation under which I already stand in this respect.

I enclose you a report we have made on the Georgia business. It appeared to me that one object of the excitement which is attempted to be g[o]t up in this matter was to throw the Hartford Convention in the Back ground & substitute a Georgia insurrection & it was to defeat that subject that we thought it advisable to bring that matter once more before the nation.

Make my best respects to Mrs. Madison and believe me my dear Sir to be

very sincerely your friend
