James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Francis Mercer, 20 December 1799

From John Francis Mercer

Decr. 20. 1799

Dear Sir

It gives me the greatest uneasiness to say that I have not as yet recd. 200$ Cash from my sales of $5000.—which was what I sold of about 12000$ offered. I shall wait only two days longer, when if matters are no better I will go on to Balto. on which place I have drafts & try to get them discounted & forward you the Money before the Assembly rises. Yrs. with great truth

John F. Mercer

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
