To James Madison from Robert Taylor, 24 October 1801

From Robert Taylor

October 24th. 1801

Dear Sir

I had prepared a draft of the principal deed for the settlement intended by your memo:1 (for it would have required several to accomplish all the purposes intended) and was waiting an opportunity to shew it to Doctr. Rose to discover whether it was agreeable to his intentions or not, When I received a note from Mrs. Rose informing it was not necessary to prepare the writings and requesting a return of her fathers memo: respecting the devise of the land to her.2 The paper was returned to her. I have thought it right to acquaint you with it that you might attach no negligence to me in delaying sending on the deed—as it seems he is again unsettled in his views respecting it. I am yrs. affetly
