James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Pinkney, 30 May 1808


London. May 30. 1808.

⟨D⟩ear Sir,

An Opportunity offers of sending ⟨P⟩ackets of Newspapers to Falmouth; but ⟨I⟩ have no Time (as the Person leaves ⟨To⟩wn this Evening) to write; and ⟨I⟩ have, indeed, nothing of Importance ⟨to⟩ communicate.

Your Letters &c by Mr. Bethune ⟨we⟩re delivered to me this Morning. ⟨Th⟩e Packet sails very soon; and ⟨I⟩ will not fail to write by her. I have the Honor to be with sincere Esteem and Respect Dear Sir, Your faithful Humble Serv

Wm. Pinkney
