James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Daniel Kincheloe, 26 May 1815

Clarksburg V.a, May 26th 1815


Being a Connection & having some personal acquaintance with you, induces me to address you thus; My brother:in:law Genl. John G. Jackson, rather dissuaded me from Continuing in the Peace establishment, which caused me to decline Coming forward in due time to be retained in Service, believing that vacancies will Occur on account of Nonacceptance. I have therefore decided on remaining in the Army, And with a reliance on my Personal merit, I have taken the liberty to solicit your interference to that effect. I have the Hon. to be very Respectfully Sir, Yr. Mo. Obt. Servt.

Daniel Kincheloe
Capt. 3rd. Rifle Regt.
