Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, [ca. February–March 1795]

From James Madison

[ca. February–March 1795]

Bringhurst says he has written to you and will write again. Donath is in Philada. He was disappointed in the importation of his glass, by the Protest of Bills occasioned by the Yellow fever in Philada. If you still want the Glass, it will be proper to renew your orders to Donath. Letters addressed to him to the care of Jno’ Bringhurst, or without that precaution will be pretty sure to get to him.

RC (MHi); unsigned and possibly fragmentary text written on a small scrap; undated and not recorded in SJL, but clearly a further response to TJ to Madison, 5 Feb. 1795, to which Madison first replied on 15 Feb. 1795.

The letter John Bringhurst claimed to have written to you is not recorded in SJL and has not been found. He did not write again for nearly a year (Madison to TJ, 31 Jan. 1796, and note).
