James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Lee, 30 November 1801

From William Lee, 30 November 1801

Bordeaux November 30th 1801


I take the liberty to enclose you an extract from the Register Book of this Consulate. It relates altogether to Mr. Barnet, but I thought it my duty to send it to you, and permit me to say, that had Mr. Barnet been contented with the Certificate from his countrymen, it would have been as well, for the manner in which those from the constituted authorities here were procured, is not very honourable to him, or favorable to me nor can those testimonies be pleasing to the President. With great respect I am Sir Yours truly

William Lee
