James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John Church, 5 July 1803 (Abstract)

§ From John Church

5 July 1803, Cork. Received JM’s circulars of 23 Mar. [not found] and 9 Apr.1 and “shall carefully ⟨a⟩ttend to their Contents.” “Agreeable to your Desire, I now hand enclosed the best Remarks I can now make of the Charges on Ships entering this Port for Light money.” Will forward as usual at year’s end “the Returns of the different Cargos.” Adds “that all Respect whatever is paid here to American Papers which accompany the Ships in regular Form, & that there is no Complaint of Object to mention with Respect to American Seamen, being pressed as was the Case last War.”
