Th:J. to Mr Madison
The inclosed barbarous Italian would require more consideration to be perfectly understood than I have time to bestow on it. I believe mr Wagner reads Italian. if he does, a good translation should be made; and it sets up such serious pretensions as that I think we should give it to Eaton & desire him to make a statement of what passed between him & the Ex bashaw & such a one as we may communicate to the latter with our determination on it.
