James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Dawson, 18 January 1795

From John Dawson

Richmond Januay. 18, 95

Dear Sir!

We have an account here that France has made peace with Prussia, which seems to gain belief—the enclosd hand bill I receivd from a friend at Norfolk & is taken from a letter to Mr. Pennock of that place.

We also hear that the duke of York has met with another severe defeat—that he lost great part of his army, & that the rest savd themselves by flight. At what time do you expect to adjourn? With much esteem Your friend & Sert
