James Madison Papers

To James Madison from David Humphreys, 29 March 1803 (Abstract)

§ From David Humphreys

29 March 1803, New York. “In compliance with a request from Mr. Thomas Bulkeley of Lisbon, now conducting the Commercial House of Messrs John Bulkeley & Son, I have the honour to forward to you the enclosed letter, which has just come to my hand. The subject of the claim of that House on the Department of State being so fully explained, I cannot doubt that a satisfactory arrangement will be made.… Any communication which you may think proper to make, will be transmitted by either Messrs Jesse & Rob: Waln1 or myself. Should you favour me with an answer, it would find me at New Haven.”
