James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Andrew Ellicott, 26 March 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Andrew Ellicott

26 March 1802, Lancaster. “The bearer Moses Cotes has communicated to me his plan of an improved Saw-Mill, for which I presume he will be asking for a Patent.1 I think the improvement merits attention, as it combines simplicity with usefulness. I hope by this time you have recovered your health.”
