To James Madison from William F. Gray, 21 October 1823

From William F. Gray

Fredericksburg Octo. 21. 1823.

Dear Sir,

Not having any remittances to make to Boston on my own acct. I have procured a draft on the Mechanics’ Bank of New York for the sum you wish to remit. And presuming it would be more agreable to you for the remittance to go directly from yourself I herewith enclose it to you. This is the best mode we in this place have of remitting money to Boston. The draft will answer the purposes of your correspondent as well as cash. You will observe it is made payable to your order, and will therefore require your endorsement to make it negotiable.

It gives me pleasure to be able to meet your wishes in this little matter, and hope that should you have any further occasion for my services you will command them freely.

Enclosed is a statement of my little acct. against you—amt. $22. which can be sent me at your convenience with the Amt. of the draft. Very respectfully Your obt. Svt.

W. F. Gray
