James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Henry Lee, 11 November 1786

From Henry Lee

Letter not found.

11 November 1786. Mentioned in JM’s letter to Lee of 23 November 1786. Concerned Lee’s sense of injury at being dropped by the Virginia legislature from the state delegation to Congress, and the “deriliction of the friendship” between JM and Lee because of JM’s being elected, so Lee thought, in his place (Lee to JM, 20 Dec. 1786).
