James Madison Papers

From James Madison to James Monroe, 28 November 1816

November 28, 1816

It will be proper to take the steps suggested by Mr. Joy for obtaining further information. My enquiry as to Nootka Sound had reference to the grounds of the Brit. claim there, and its analogy to that of the U. S. at the mouth of Columbia. See Vancouvre’s acct. of the B. proceedings at Nootka: also Capt: Morris’s communication to Mr. Graham Ocr. 24. 1816.
