James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Leonard, 24 July 1807

Barcelona 24th. July 1807


Your Letter of 23 March by Mr. Brent I had the honor to receive ⟨and ren⟩dered that Gentleman, every service & attention in my power. The Capn. ⟨Gener⟩al at my request permitted him to come on shore & have free intercourse ⟨   ⟩ before the Quarantine of the vessel expired, which was a favor never granted to any one. He yesterday left this for France.

Herewith I enclose a List of ⟨a⟩rrivals from the 1 January to 30th. June 1807 & my account with the ⟨U States⟩

In this corner of the world we have nothing new but what you receive much earlier & with more correctness from other ports.

Assuring you that whatever is in my power to serve my ⟨Country,⟩ or Countrymen, I do not fail to make use of, I have the honor to be Sir Your most obt: Svt:

J Leonard
