To James Madison from Samuel Smith (Abstract), 25 May 1805

§ From Samuel Smith

25 May 1805, Baltimore. “My friends Mr. Barclay & Mr. Davis will perhaps Spend a Day or two at Washington on their Way to Richmond. Will you do me the favor to present them to the President as Gentlemen I respect. Mr Barclay is a son of Mr. George Barclay, Member for the City of London.1 Mr. Davis [is] a very intimate friend of my Son.”

RC (DLC). 1 p.

1This was, presumably, London merchant George Barclay who was the member of Parliament for Bridport, Dorset (Thorne, History of Parliament: The House of Commons, 1790–1820, 3:135–36). His son has not been identified.
