To James Madison

Monticello Aug. 12. [i.e. 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 Mc.Niel’s, and fear it will be very embarrassing. other dispatches oblige me to close here with assurances of my affectionate esteem & respect.

PrC (DLC); date assigned from Madison to TJ, 14 Aug. and SJL. Recorded in SJL as a letter to the State Department of 13 Aug. Enclosures not identified.
