James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Samuel Latham Mitchill, 21 April 1806

Washington, April 21. 1806

Dear Sir

Mr. Francis Baretto, a native of Madeira, and for the last fifteen years of his life or more a citizen of the United States resident as a Merchant in the City of Newyork, has begged me to introduce him to you. This I perform by a Note, on account of the press of Congressional bussiness today. Mr. B. wishes an opportunity to inform you that in all probability the Consul of the U.S. at Madeira is no more, and that he wishes in case of such event to be appointed his Successor. A Situation to which I beleive him very competent. I have the honor to renew the assurances of my Respect

Saml Mitchill
