From James Madison to United States Senate, 17 April 1816

17 April 1816

To the Senate

It being presumed that further information may have changed the views of the Senate relative to the importance & expediency of a Mission to Naples, for the purpose of negociating indemnities to our Citizens for Spoliations committed by the Neapolitan Government. I nominate William Pinkney Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Russia, to be Minister Plenipotentiary to Naples specially charged with that trust.
