James Madison Papers

James Madison to [David Weaver], 29 August 1833

[post 29 August 1833]


I have recd. your letter of the 29th. Augt.

I will take 10,000 weight of pork at the price you mention $5 per hundred averaging not less than 140 each hog, to be delivered not before the first week of December.

I will also take three of your Beeves at the market price & Mr. Brockman will if he can engage the other two. Please to inform me if you can furnish seven or eight bushels of cloverseed of a good quality and at what price, and give me a particular answer whether I can depend on you delivering the pork and beef. It will not suit me to take the family flour.

Draft (DLC).
