James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Sylvanus Bourne, 10 August 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Sylvanus Bourne

10 August 1801, Amsterdam. Hastens to forward the enclosed from Murray, since it conveys conclusion of matters with France. Hopes nothing else will disturb American peace during the European war, which he fears is not near an end. Reports that “negotiations [between France and Great Britain] are said to be much interrupted within a few days past.”
