James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Allen, 14 January 1831

Montpellier Jany. 14. 31.

Dear Sir

I did not receive yours of the 11th. in time to answer it by the last Mail. From the general prospect in Europe I should infer that the price of flour would not be likely to decline. But as you have the same information generally that I have, and occasionly fresher & better opportunities of learning the state of the Markets every where which influences the price with us, I wish you to consult your own judgment, relying on that more than on my own, and satisfied that it will aim at the best.

Please to mention how the balance between us stands at present, & the number of Barrels of flour unsold. The residue of my crop will be got down as soon as the roads & weather will permit. Friendly respects

J. M.
