James Madison Papers

From James Madison to John George Jackson, July 1806

July-September 1806

Dear Sir

I recd. duly yours of [  ] inclosing $300. The little delay has been no wise inconvenient. I regret only that I omitted to give you notice that there was no occasion for your being in a hurry. My last letters from London are of the 9th. & from Paris the 1st. of June. Nothing had occurred at either place from which the result could be known; On the other hand nothing particularly inauspicious to our hopes. The rumors of a negociation for peace between G. B. & Her enemies, which of late have gained some strength, necessarily interest our attention. We have Genl. & Mrs. Dearborn with us, & prepare to go with them to Monticello tomorrow. Will it be impossible for you to take Orange in your way to Washington? Present our affects. to Mrs. J. & be assured Dr. Sir of my sincerest esteem & friendship
