James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Anthony Charles Cazenove, 17 May 1813

From Anthony Charles Cazenove

Alexandria May 17th. 1813


As you have been good enough to favor me sometimes with orders for wine, I take the liberty to inform you in case you should want some Claret that I wish to dispose of Mr. Gallatin’s, the quality of which is good, & I will sell it lower than you can get it elsewhere. Being on that topic beg leave also to mention that I will sell 1 qr. Cask good Lisbon, a half qr. Cask good Malaga, loaf sugar & other articles of groceries, which your stewart might look at, & take what he thought you would want. They are now on the spot & my intention being to sell them, & at all events remove them, it would be a mutual convenience as far as you want the articles.

Not wishing to part with any of them, till I know your intentions, on account of the difficulties of procuring them from a distance at present, I will take it as a particular favor your being good enough to favour me with a line, & if you conclude on your stewart seaing them, will meet him at Mr. Gallatin’s, the day & hour you will please to name. I am with highest regard very respectfully Sir Your most Obedt. Servt.

Ant Chs. Cazenove
