> Incidentally, the Ford ed. can be wrong; e.g. TJ's 1787 letter > from France to "Bishop James Madison" was actually to the other James > Madison. Keep up the good work. All the editions have various errors, including the Memorial Edition, which is the one I own. These must be remedied on an ad hoc basis, as one comes upon them. Establishing a website such as my own is not simply a matter of copying quotes one runs across. Making corrections is an ongoing process.
