James Madison Papers

James Madison to Bernard Peyton, 11 July 1829

July 11. 1829

Dr Sir

Yours of the 3d. was duly recd. and the Articles it refers to [du]ly delivered.

My overseer says that he can not immediately follow up the waggoning his Tobo. & wishes the 2 Hhds. on hand to be sold without waiting for more, being apprehensive that the order in which the Tobo. was priced, may render delay unfavorable to the sale, by limiting it to the manufacturers.

The Harvest is now over in this neighborhood, & the wheat found to be excellent in quality, owing to the cool season, & rather short in quantity owing to the harming frosts of the winter. With respects & good wishes


Draft (DLC).
