James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Vincent Gray, 18 February 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Vincent Gray

18 February 1803, Havana. Encloses a copy of the governor’s order respecting strangers.1 Although the order appears to be severe and will probably be carried into execution more rigorously than usual, he has experienced more pointed public attentions from the government lately “than at any time heretofore.” Was apprised of the order and the cause of its being issued “some days past” and will inform JM by a ship which will sail “in a few days for Baltimore.”
