James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Jones, 22 April 1802 (Abstract)

§ From William Jones

22 April 1802, Philadelphia. Writes on behalf of some of his mercantile friends of Philadelphia who wish to recommend Isaac Cushing,1 “a citizen of the United States and resident merchant and partner in a very respectable House in Marseilles,” for the office of commercial agent at that city. Notes that because Cathalan is a French citizen, his “holding of the office of a foreign Consulate … is incompatible with the regulations of french Government.”
