James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Sylvanus Bourne, 12 November 1801 (Abstract)

§ From Sylvanus Bourne

12 November 1801, Amsterdam. States difficulty of defining current political situation in Europe or predicting its ultimate form. Upcoming congress at Amiens will undertake this business; promises to communicate results. Adds in a postscript that late changes in Netherlands are a “visible departure” from the principles that gave rise to the revolution.
