To James Madison from Peder Blicherolsen, 17 February 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Peder Blicherolsen

17 February 1803, Washington. “In presenting the inclosed1 to You, I feel ashamed and sorry lest You should suspect me to have been unmindfull of what You observed to me the other evening. Duty has in this case been my despot, and under such control—be it that of either duty or despot—whose indulgence can I sooner expect than Yours.… I wish You Sir uninterrupted health and happiness—wanting both myself, I know of nothing more precious to offer.”
