From James Madison to George W. Erving, 18 January 1804 (Abstract)

§ To George W. Erving

18 January 1804, Department of State. “Mr. Norman Butler, a claimant in the case of the Sally, Benton,1 has applied for the accommodation yielded in some few instances to others, in being permitted by joining with himself all the other claimants except the mariners, to draw upon you for what is due to him & the former. I therefore request that the claimants bill in this case may be accepted without including the sum due to the Mariners.”
