From James Madison to Robert Power, 1 April 1806

Department of State, 1 April 1806.


It being represented that you detain the Seal & official documents of the late Mr. G. W. McElroy, under the apprehension that you would not be justified in delivering them to his successor Mr. John James Armstrong without an order from this Department, I have thought proper to direct that they be given up to him without delay. I am &c.

James Madison.
