To James Madison from Charles D. Coxe, 24 November 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Charles D. Coxe

24 November 1802, Philadelphia. Has been informed that Peter Dobell intends to resign as commercial agent for Le Havre. Solicits the appointment should that be the case.1 “The proximity of that place to the residence of my brother-in-law (Mr. Le Ray de Chaumont) will render it peculiarly agreable to me, & I humbly hope the recommendations The President has already had of me will be sufficient to induce him to accord me this great favor.”
