James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Ridgely, 8 July 1807

Leghorn July 8th. 1807.


I have the honor to inform you that Consul Davis arrived in Tripoli on the 6th. of May. I left there on the 12th. and arrived here a few days since in the U. S. S. Constitution, Come. Campbell.

I embrace this favorable opportunity of passing two or three months in the most interesting part of the world, and hope this step will not be disapprobated by you.

I profit by this occasion of renewing to you the assurances of my high respect.

John Ridgely
