James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Moultrie, 5 April 1803 (Abstract)

§ From William Moultrie

5 April 1803, Charleston. Returns his commission as bankruptcy commissioner. “As Tis a business that requires much time and attention, it will be very inconvenient for me.” Recommends John Webb, who was appointed to the position by Judge Bee “some time ago” but was superseded by the recent appointment. “He is a man of integrity and the only one now in the Commission of this State that has been bred a merchant.”
