James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Francis Mercer, 12 November 1802

From John Francis Mercer


Annapolis Nov. 12th. 1802.

Dear Sir

As you sometime since promis’d me that you woud forward to me any communications you might receive from Mr King relative to the Bank Stock of Maryland,1 I shoud have concluded from your silence that nothing on the subject had transpired from our Minister, but aware of the multiplicity of business that continually occupies your attention, & which may put this object out of sight or delay its communication, I have only written this to remind you of your promise & that any information on the subject woud at this moment be peculiarly interesting as the Legislature have it presented to them, now & I woud not wish them to act on partial communications.2
