James Madison Papers

To James Madison from James Anderson, 6 November 1802 (Abstract)

§ From James Anderson

6 November 1802, Paris. Acknowledges JM’s letter of 11 June [not found] containing the standing instructions to consuls and vice-consuls, a circular letter to consuls and collectors of customs, the form of a bill of health, and his commission as commercial agent at Cette.1 Is grateful for the confidence JM and Jefferson have placed in him and will “strenuously endeavour to merit the same.” Transmits his bond signed by his friends Skipwith and Holker. Will leave for Cette as soon as possible.
