James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Savage, 19 December 1801

From William Savage, 19 December 1801


Kingston Jamaica Decr. 19th. 1801


Since my last we have no further Accounts respecting the French Troops expected from France, but there is no doubt the attempt will be made.

Americans that have been imprest are almost daily discharged from the Several ships of war on this Station, but their are Still many that remain onboard for w⟨ant⟩ of Documents. I am endeavoring to col⟨lect⟩ the names of those that remain & the place of residence of their Familys to enable me to transmit them to you. Those who have been discharged have to a man been destitute of every kind of Cloathing except a Frock Trowsers & Hatt & therefore have been assisted with Cloaths to cover their nakedness. I have the Honour to be with respect, Your Obed H Servt.

Wm. Savage
