James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Isaac Hite, 5 May 1803

To Isaac Hite

Washington Friday May 5. 1803

Dr. Sir

Business & bad weather have thus far detained me. I hope to set out tomorrow morning, if the mail of this evening brings nothing to interfere. There is a rumour that hostilities have commenced between G. B. & France. The event is to be expected from the positions taken by both parties both in arms & in negociation. Yrs. truly

J. Madison
