James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Israel Whelen, 26 February 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Israel Whelen

26 February 1802, Philadelphia. Since his letter of 22 Feb. regarding the balance due Stewart & Company for the freight of the Grand Turk, General Stevens’s draft for $7,350 has been presented. Encloses copies of the consul’s certificate of delivery, a statement of the account, and receipt for the draft, which he has received from Gordon, the general’s agent. If the $7,000 requested in his previous letter has been remitted, it will not be necessary to send the additional $350; if not, requests full amount.
