James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Armstrong, Jr., 24 June 1807

Paris 24 June 1807.


I have the honor to transmit herewith the Moniteur of the day, which contains a very interesting account of the resumption of hostilities between the grand Armies &c.

I send also copies of three letters which I have written to the Prince of Benevent on the subject of our business with Spain. To the first of these I have received no answer from that Minister. The two others were sent by a Courier of my own, as the office-reason assigned for this Silence was, "the probability that any letter of the ⟨   ⟩ of February had been lost on the road". To these I ⟨c⟩annot expect an answer before the middle of July. I have the honor to be, Sir, with very high consideration and respect, your most obedient & very humble servant

John Armstrong.
