James Madison Papers

James Madison to Richard Cutts, 24 December 1828

Decr 24. —28

Dr Sir

Hearing nothing on the Subject of my answer to the Bill in Chancy. I begin to fear that some miscarriage has taken place or that a throng of business has not left Mr. Jones time to attend to it. Which ever be the cause, time must now be pressing, as I understood from you the Court was to sit in this month. If the adversary in the suit be at all likely to make out a troublesome case, you can best judge, whether it may not be agreeable to Mr Jones as well as otherwise convenient to engage Mr. West, or some one else to take a part in the burden of the proceedings. Affe. respts
