James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Robert Montgomery, 30 April 1801

From Robert Montgomery, 30 April 1801

Alicante 30th. April 1801


I had the honour of addressing you under the 31 Ulto. since which I have not received any orders from Government. The merit of this is chiefly to cover copies of two letters which I received by the last Packet from Algiers dated the [. . .] of this month, & to which you will please be refered. There has not appeared any Cruizers whatever on this Coast belonging to the Barbary States, but I have taken care to advertize all Masters of American vessels arriving at this or the adjacent Ports of the danger which at present seems to threate⟨n.⟩ I am with due respect—Sir your Obt. Huml. Servt.

Robt. Montgomery
