James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Theodore Peters, 9 December 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Theodore Peters

9 December 1802, Bordeaux. Transmits letters from Pinckney which he has been unable to send earlier “for want of a good and safe opportunity.” Has learned from friends in Europe and from American newspapers that the president has appointed him vice-agent for Bordeaux. Having received no official notice, doubts the authenticity of the reports. “A line from You upon This Subject will Infinitely Oblige Me.”
