To James Madison from Alexander Richards, 15 February 1804 (Abstract)

§ From Alexander Richards

15 February 1804, New York. “I herewith inclose a Memorial,1 which you will please to lay before the President of the United States—as I am unacquainted with the mode of proceeding in such cases—you will attribute any informality to a want of knowledge, and not to a want of respect for the constituted authorities of the Government.”
