To James Madison from Elbridge Gerry, 3 January 1812

From Elbridge Gerry

Cambridge 3d Jany 1812

Dear Sir,

I addressed, at the request of some Gentlemen, a line to you yesterday, introducing the Count de Crillon to your Excellency; and think it expedient to inform you, that I am in every respect uninformed in regard to the politicks of that nobleman, he being to me an entire stranger. Respectfully your Excellency’s unfeigned Friend

E Gerry

RC (DLC: Rives Collection, Madison Papers). Later docketed by JM, with his note, “qualifying introduction of DeCrillon.”
