Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 9 August 1810

To James Madison

Monto Aug. 9. 10.

Th:J. to J.M.

I have just time before closing the mail to send you the Memoir on the Batture. it is long; but it takes a more particular view of the legal system of Orleans & the peculiar river on which it lies, than may have before presented itself. however you can readily skip over uninteresting heads. my visit to you depends on the getting a new threshing machine to work: which I expect will permit me to depart the last of this week or early in the next. Affectionate salutns

RC (The White House, Washington, D.C.; tipped into copy of Esther Singleton, The Story of the White House [1907]); dateline at foot of text. Not recorded in SJL. Enclosure: TJ’s Statement on the Batture Case, 31 July 1810.
