James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Daniel Clark, 12 March 1803 (Abstract)

§ From Daniel Clark

12 March 1803, New Orleans. “I have learned from the Secretary of the Province Dn Andres Lopez Armesto that the Letters received by the Schooner Cordelia from Monsr. Pichon contained a very strong recommendation to place matters respecting the Deposit on the former footing, but no alteration will be made, till advices are received from Court, as it is always the Custom here when any measure is adopted and information thereof given, that it shall be persisted in till the Royal pleasure is known.”
