To James Madison from William Henry Harrison, 8 September 1801

From William Henry Harrison

Vincennes 8th. Septr 1801.


The late Secretary of State having neglected to send on a seal for the General Court of this Territory and as it was impossible to do without one I employed Mr. Small1 of this place to supply the deficiency. He has executed his task extremely well & his charge (30 Dollars) I think very reasonable. As disbursements of this kind for the Territories have usually been made through your office I have advised Mr. Small to direct his account to you & shall be much gratified if you should think proper to order it to be paid.2 I have the Honour to be ⟨Most⟩ Respectfully your Hume Servt.

Willm. Henry ⟨Harrison⟩3
