From James Madison to David Gelston, 30 July 1810

To David Gelston

July 30. 1810

Dear Sir

If this should happen to arrive before the sailing of the Hornet, be so good as to forward the packet for Mr. Pinkney1 by that opportunity; if not in time for that, by any safe one next offering from your port. If no early oppy. should offer for London, it will be nearly as well to send it to Liverpool, endorsing in this case, “to the care of Mr. Maury Consul of the U.S.” Accept my respects & good wishes.

James Madison

RC (NEh: Long Island Collection).

1No communication from JM to Pinkney during the summer of 1810 has been found.
