From James Madison to Jeremiah Yellott, 24 December 1803 (Abstract)

§ To Jeremiah Yellott

24 December 1803, Department of State. “In answer to your letter of the 22d. Ult. [not found] I have to inform you, that I have recd. no intimation of the forms in which claims for restitution under the French Treaty are presented & prosecuted other than what it points out: but if the claim for the Mary1 were transmitted to Mr. Skipwith the public Agent or your private Agent at Paris it would doubtless be placed by them in the necessary train.”
