From James Madison to James Monroe, 11 July 1806

Department of State 11 July 1806


The enclosed papers, respecting the practices of British traders with the Indians, to instigate them against the United States, were received through General Wilkinson.

I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, with very great respect, Your most obed. servt.
