To James Madison from Peder Blicherolsen, 11 April 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Peder Blicherolsen

11 April 1803, Philadelphia. Has just received two royal ordinances from Copenhagen, one detailing quarantine regulations for Americans and the other stipulating laws and rules prescribed for Danish and all other ships. Has had the former translated in full and seven articles connected with and explanatory of it extracted from the latter. Encloses translations.1 Believes a knowledge of them should be publicly diffused throughout the U.S. and suggests that JM order the “editor of the National Gazette” to publish them and to recommend that they be printed in other newspapers. Adds in a postscript that he departs 12 Apr. with Thornton for New York and Boston in an attempt to reestablish his health and to see the northern states before leaving the U.S. Expects to return in “about three weeks” to New York, where he will probably remain for eight or ten days before departing for Washington to call on JM and the president. Will be pleased to execute any commands of JM or Mrs. Madison in the above places and will take care that no orders sent him will miss him on the road.
