To James Madison from Thomas Jefferson, [13] August 1802

From Thomas Jefferson

Monticello Aug. 12. [13] 1802.

Th: J. to mr. Madison

The post having made it night before his arrival yesterday and my mail extraordinarily voluminous, I have been able to read & now return you the inclosed papers only. Mr. Livingston’s shall come by the next mail. I do not like this mistake of Capt. McNiel’s, and fear it will be very embarrassing.1 Other d⟨is⟩patches oblige me to close here with assurances of my affectiona⟨te⟩ esteem & respect.
