James Madison Papers

James Madison to John King, 17 August 1830

Montpellier Aug. 17. 1830


I recd. by yesterdays mail your letter of the 14th. and am sorry I can not aid in satisfying the enquiry it makes concerning Genl. Thomas Bullett. I recollect that in the year 1775. I saw him in Williamsburg, where I happened to be, tho’ not in the character you suppose, and where he was stationed in a Military command; but I had no acquaintance with him. Of the time of his death & whether he died in the Continental service, I am entirely ignorant. With his brother Cuthbert, I became acquainted in the year following, being both members of the Convention in that year. With respect
