James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Radford, 9 February 1802 (Abstract)

§ From William Radford1

9 February 1802, Richmond. Knowing that the office of Richmond postmaster is vacant and that General Guerrant has declined the appointment, asks JM to intercede on his behalf with the president for the position. Governor Monroe has promised to mention him to Jefferson, and John Harvie has written to Jefferson on his behalf. Asks JM to excuse the freedom he takes since “no intimacy exists between you, & myself.”
