To James Madison from James Monroe, 13 September 1813

From James Monroe

Albemarle Sepr. 13. 1813

Dear Sir

I have been much engaged in my private concerns, tho’ rather indisposed, since my return home, so that I have not been able to enter on any serious business. I shall begin to day to take up the most pressing.

I retain for the present Sodestroms comns., believing that their effect will be to license a trade with the enemy.1 I return the letters of the Secry at war and of the navy.2 Respectfully & sincerely yours

Jas Monroe
