James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Dawson, 24 November 1798

From John Dawson

Alexandria November 24th. 1798.

Dear Sir!

I am thus far on my way to Philadelphia, from whence I shall write to you as soon as I have any thing worthy communicating—in the mean time I will thank you for your sentiments about the situation of M. Lyon, and what steps we ought to take as it regards the constitution, and policy.

I have some reason to think that another attempt will be made to expel him. Accept my best wishes!

J Dawson.

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
