James Madison Papers

James Madison to Isaac Coles, 29 May 1827

Montpr. May 29 1825

Dr Sir

By an arrangement with your brother Edward, $2000 were to be placed by him to my Acct in the Bank of Virginia. Mr. Rutherfoord informs me that this has in effect been done and I inclose my bond for that sum which your brother desired might be forwarded to you. It was understood that a moity of it accrues to his Sister Betsey, and if his arrangemt. with her, does not make it appear to be the case, I shall readily substitute for the bond executed, a separate bond for cash.

It appears that your brother underrates his Stock, in settling the amount of its proceeds with me. The inclosed check for $16. repays the balances due to him. With affect esteem


Draft (NN: Lee Kohns Memorial Collection).
