From James Madison to David Sewall, 3 December 1802 (Abstract)

§ To David Sewall1

3 December 1802, Department of State. Will lay Sewall’s 20 Nov. letter [not found] before the president. No commissioner of bankruptcy has been appointed since those named in the letter to Widgery [not found]. Proper notification of the appointment of commissioners of bankruptcy is considered to be the exhibition of their commissions; therefore, no other evidence of the appointment has been added.
