To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 4 September 1808

Sepr. 4. 1808

Dear Sir

The packet brought me by the mail of friday from Milton, was strangely delayed somewhere; more than by the mistake which carried it to Monticello. It contained the inclosed letter from Pinkney, which has a much better flavour that his preceding one of the 22d. June. Should any future packets or letters from the Office of State, get to Monticello in the first instance, I beg you to open them. In some cases it may be of real importance to do so.

Yrs. with respectful attacht.

James Madison
