James Madison Papers

To James Madison from James Sullivan, 24 November 1803 (Abstract)

§ From James Sullivan

24 November 1803, Boston. “When I observed in the Presidents public communication that there is a convention for a demarkation of the line between the northern angle of the united States and the British dominions, I recollected that you did me the honor, some time ago, to receive from me a communication on that Subject,1 and I therefore now take the freedom to mention to you, that if I should be thought of as a commissioner in that business I should not decline it.”
