From James Madison to James Monroe, 3 December 1806

Department of State Decr. 3rd. 1806

Gentlemen

You will have seen by my letter of the 6th. inst. which went by Sundry conveyances, that the bill Suspending the non-intercourse act had passed the House of Representatives. I now enclose it in the form of a law, with an amendment providing for a further Suspension by the Executive in case the State of things between the two countries Should require it. In the Senate the vote for the Bill was unanimous. I add a continuation of the newspapers, and refer to these for the current information of a public nature. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, with great respect, Your most obed. Servt.
