James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Pierre Samuel DuPont de Nemours, 2 May 1802

To Pierre Samuel DuPont de Nemours

Washington May 2. 1802

Mr. Madison presents his best respects to Mr. Dupont de Nemours, and requests that he will be so obliging as to take charge of some despatches for the American Minister at Paris,1 which are forwarded by the present mail to the post-master at Philada. They are to be handed by him to Mr. Dupont. Should a failure happen, Mr. M. will take it as a favor, if Mr. Dupont will please, before he embarks, to have application made at the post office. Mr. Madison intreats Mr. Dupont to accept his friendly wishes for an agreeable voyage, and the most happy prospects on his arrival.
