James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Savage, 7 December 1801 (Abstract)

§ From William Savage

7 December 1801, Kingston, Jamaica. Believes he has anticipated the president’s wish by requesting of Admiral Montagu the general liberation of all American seamen. Encloses copies of his letter and Montagu’s reply. Urges again that the place of birth be shown on identity papers of native Americans; believes this omission hinders release of many.
