James Madison Papers

James Madison to Bernard Peyton, 2 August 1830

Aug. 2. 1830

Dr. Sir

Be so good as to mention the balance in your hand after paying a draft of $100 dollars whilst I was at the University. I am endeavouring to make up before the 1st. of Sepr the discount day at the Bank as much as will discharge one half of my debt to it. Friendly salutations


I have in the Tobo. Houses the amt of a few Hhds reported to be abt. half a dozen, which the delays of my discharged overseer, & the busy Seasons since have made it impossible to prepare for market. The quality is probably not essentially different from what has been sold. How long can a further postponement take place, without passing the limited period.

Draft (DLC).
