James Madison Papers

From James Madison to James Monroe, 14 June 1815

Washington June 14. 1815

Dear Sir

Nothing important has occurred since my last. The inclosed letter from Dr. Jackson was accompanied with a letter from the Emperor Nap: and another from Carlaincout. circulars, such as have been in our prints, with a few adaptations to the U. S. Genl. Wilkinson rejects an offered Commission for Treating with the N. W. Indians. The others appd. are Harrison, in his place, McArthur, & John Graham. It was known that the last would be gratified with it, and understood that it wd. not much prolong his intended stay in the W. Country. Nothing has been communicated by Mr. Serrurier, since his recet. of the dispatches referred to by Dr. Jackson. It is probable they are of the same import with those directly to this Govt.

Yrs. Affey
