James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Robert R. Livingston, 11 November 1803

To Robert R. Livingston

Washington Novr. 11 1803

Dear Sir

The Bearer Mr. Isaac Coles is about to visit England, and will probably see Paris before he comes back to this Country. He is a young gentleman who is represented to me from the best quarters as equally estimable for his talents & his dispositions, and has the better claim on my attentions, as his family is nearly related to that of Mrs. Madison.1 Permit me to make him known to you & to ask for him the civilities which I flatter myself you will find well bestowed on him. With great esteem & respect I am Dr. Sir Yrs.
