James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Thomas Jefferson, [5 November] 1803

To Thomas Jefferson

[5 November 1803]

The Louisiana documents did not come from Mr. Gallatin till a day or two ago. I have this morning delivered 38 revised pages, which will go to the press, a few of which have been some time in the ty⟨pes⟩. There will be abt. ⅓ or ½ as many more. No time will be lost. The bulk of the work will apologize to the House for the delay.1
