James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Carlos Martínez de Yrujo, 18 January 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Carlos Martinez de Yrujo

18 January 1803, Capitol Hill. Has received JM’s “litle notte of yesterday [not found].” “Whatever may be his [Yrujo’s] wishes to yield to Mr Madison’s powerful interference in favor of Messrs. Nottnagell & Montmollin’s of Philadelphia, whose letter is return’d,1 it is out of his power to grant them the Passeport they wish for the Havana, as the King’s orders upon this head are positif.” Has in consequence refused many similar applications.
