James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Elias Vander Horst, 10 July 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Elias Vander Horst

10 July 1801, Bristol. Since his dispatch of 12 May, has received no letters from State Department. Encloses accounts of imports and exports by U.S. vessels in his district for first half of 1801, newspapers, and London prices current. Anticipates an abundant harvest; despite this prospect, prices are now advancing after recent fall. Owing to ill health, he must travel to Bath frequently and will leave Richard Vigor in charge during these absences.
