James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Robert W. Fox, 5 July 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Robert W. Fox

5 July 1802, Falmouth. Reports the arrival of a great number of American ships with cargoes of wheat and flour, “part of which has been forwarded to London, Nantz, Barcelona &ca., but the greatest part for Havre de Grace, where a very large quantity of Grain and Flour is already arrived; and … the price has fallen.” Trade in Great Britain is “very dull, and freights low and scarce.” Hopes to send the returns for the district up to 30 June shortly.
