To James Madison from William C. C. Claiborne, 2 December 1803 (Abstract)

§ From William C. C. Claiborne

2 December 1803, Natchez. “The Mail this evening brought me a Letter from Mr. Clark, which I here inclose with sincere pleasure, as it contains additional grounds of expectation, that the Province of Louisiana &c will be delivered over to us without the necessity of our having recourse to Hostile extremities.1 As there is I believe no doubt but that Mr. Landais brought with him the original papers alluded to by Mr. Clark, all difficulties respecting the Cession seem to be removed.”
