To James Madison from Sylvanus Bourne, 16 July 1802

From Sylvanus Bourne, 16 July 1802

Amstm. July 16 1802


I send you herewith the ⟨L.⟩ Gazettes to the present date. Those you desired for the last years are all packed & only want a Conveyance to Baltimore—my house here will continue to forward those which succeed. Seeing that (agreeably to the tenor of my last to you) I expect to embark for UStates in all this month, as the most probable means of restoring the physical & intellectual health of Mrs B. I have made due arrangements for filling my place here during my absence which I hope will be but a few months. I confide that under the peculiar circumstances of the case Govt. will be disposed to shew me every indulgence & am Yrs Respectfully

S Bourne
