James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Sylvanus Bourne, 22 September 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Sylvanus Bourne

22 September 1801, Amsterdam. Encloses that day’s Leiden Gazette with accounts of the revolution in government at The Hague.1 Reports that the Austrian emperor continues to sanction election of bishops of Cologne and Münster despite French and Prussian opposition. A few days earlier he forwarded a packet of letters from Pinckney, who left Amsterdam on 19 Sept. en route to Madrid. Would appreciate political news from America. In a postscript requests two or three good prints of Jefferson.
