James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Alexander James Dallas, 1 October 1816

1 Oct. 1816.

Dear Sir,

A Severe indisposition has confined me to my bed for three days. I am sufficiently recovered, however, to decide upon beginning my journey this afternoon, or tomorrow morning. I have left every thing here in order; and I shall continue, with great pleasure, to transact the business of the Department, until you are ready to relieve me. You will, of course, give me notice of a day, on which I am to cease to act. I will take care, that there shall be no legal, or practical, collision with my professional engagements. I am, Dear Sir, most respectfully & faithfully, Yrs.

A. J. Dallas
