James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Caesar A. Rodney, 15 January 1802

To Caesar A. Rodney

Washington Jany. 15. 1802

Dear Sir

I am just making a list of the papers in which the laws are to be published in each State. The Mirror of Wilmington1 is understood to be the proper choice for Delaware. Will you favor me with your opinion, wch. will be waited for, unless I should be obliged to anticipate it, which may perhaps be the case? I am led to suppose there can be little danger of erring by giving a preference to that paper. Mr. Giles is not yet returned. I learn with much pleasure that the crisis apprehended by you, is likely to pass over without the necessity of recurring to the fundamental questions supposed to be involved in it. Very respectfully I remain Dr. sr. Yr. friend & servt.

James Madison
