James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Jacob Wagner, 30 March 1802

From Jacob Wagner

Baltimore 30 March 1802

Dr. Sir

I beg your excuse for the liberty I take in covering the two enclosed letters to your address.

Since I have been here I have had the injudicious medical treatment I sustained at Washington corrected; and by the change of air and use of exercise there is a flattering expectation of my being restored to even better health than I formerly had. It is at present faulty only in the appetite, which has been excessively weakened.

If I can at this distance contribute towards the labours of the office, it will afford me satisfaction to receive your commands. I have the honor to remain With respectful attachment Your most obed. servt.

Jacob Wagner
