James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William G. Hubbel, 15 October 1801 (Abstract)

§ From William G. Hubbel

15 October 1801, Hudson. Encloses a letter [not found] from his brother, which he believes shows that his brother did not receive the king’s bounty. Protests the injustice of his brother’s having been detained for four or five years on a British frigate. Also encloses letters from Savage acknowledging receipt of the proof of his brother’s “nativity & Citizenship.” Believes that “a little exertion on the part of the Agent at Kingston” would obtain his brother’s release and asks that JM require Savage to obtain a hearing for his brother and inform him of any progress.
