James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Lockhart, 8 October 1802 (Abstract)

§ From John Lockhart

8 October 1802, Northampton County, North Carolina. Encloses two letters recommending him for appointment as marshal for North Carolina.1 “Judge Potter informed me, he had observed in his letter to you, that he had no knowledge of my political opinion, and observed it wou’d be proper that it shou’d be known.… I have always been of republican politics, but hope that Mr. Macon & Mr. Stone will give you further satisfaction on that head.”
