James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Elias Vander Horst, 21 April 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Elias Vander Horst

21 April 1801, Bristol. Has received no letters from State Department since writing his of 18 Mar. Notes that papers transmitted (which include London prices current) report two great events in northern Europe. Will not conjecture on possible consequences except to say he is not sanguine of peace but fears the contrary. Reports that provisions continue to decline in price; weather has been wet and cold.
