Ap. 20. 1808
The only application I had for Richmond was a recommendation in favr. of Wardlaw by, I believe, Wilson Nicholas—
On reflection I agree with Mr. Madison that Mr. Erskine’s representation respecting W. Florida claimants should be sent to Congress for information, but without recommendation.
Respectfully Your obedt. Sev.
