James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Alexander James Dallas, 29 August 1815

29 Aug. 1815

Dear Sir,

The inclosed Register confirms the latest news from Europe. The termination of Bonaparte’s political life, is in character with its progress. There are two accounts of Mess. Gallatin and Clay; one sends them to Philadelphia in the Electra; and the other sends them to New-York in the Ship Lorenzo. It is affirmed in a Paris paper, that they sailed in the latter vessel on the 22d. of July. The accounts from our Squadron, give us victory and peace, in the Mediterranean.

I inclose a copy of the Circular to the Collectors, written in compliance with Mr. Dashcoff’s request. I am, Dr. Sir, Most respectfully & faithfully Yrs.

A. J. Dallas
