James Madison Papers

William B. Quarrier to James Madison, 13 May 1835

Norfolk, 13. May 1835


The name of the Writer of this Letter will perhaps recur to your Memory. Tho many many Years have passed, I cannot but hope that the name of Alexander Quarrier, of Richmond Virga. is not forgotten. He is now numbered with the dead, and his son now comes in behalf of his Widow, to ask, if in your opinion she is entitled to any thing from our Country, for his services, rendered during the Revolutionary War. You were in Battle together, and I have heard him say were well acquainted. I ask this advice of you, because I Know of no one now living from whom the information could be more satisfactorily obtained. If it be not trespassing too much on your time, might I beg the favor of a reply With the greatest Veneration I am Sir Yr. Obedt. Sert

Wm. B. Quarrier
