James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Richard Harrison, 12 May 1806

May 12, 1806

Dr. Sir

Since the presentation of Mr OBrien’s last claim, I have discovered (in his contingent or consular Acct.) a charge, for a payment made on the 18. Oct. 1798 of Dollr. 187 50/100⟨10⟩. for 7 1/ 2 months Service of James Carr as his clerk or Secretary, at the rate of 25 Dollr. %pr% Mo. A knowledge of this fact may be of some use to the Secretary in deciding on the allowance to be made Mr OBrien on the score of Secretaryship. Yrs. with Respect

R. Harrison
