Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 24 March 1793

From James Madison

Alexanda. Mar: 24: 93

Dear Sir

I wrote at Baltimore, but the letter being too late for the mail, I have suppressed it. It contained nothing of consequence. We arrived here to day (2 OC) and shall proceed to Colchester to night. Our journey has been successful; tho’ laborious for the horses. The roads bad generally from Head of Elk; on the North of Baltimore, and thence to George Town, excessively so. I am just told by Mr. R. B. Lee here, that Rutherford is elected, so is Griffin, Nicholas, and New. The other elections are unknown here. Yrs. always & affecy.

Js. Madison Jr

Madison’s next letter to TJ, dated 31 Mch. 1793 and recorded in SJL as received 9 Apr. 1793, has not been found, but it concerned the Virginia elections (Madison, Papers, description begins William T.
