From James Madison to William Lattimore, 17 February 1804 (Abstract)

§ To William Lattimore

17 February 1804, Department of State. “I have just received the enclosed memorial from the Merchants of New Orleans1 with a request to place it in the hands of one of the Members of Congress. Though I have learnt that a law has been passed upon the subject matter of the memorial, I have nevertheless thought it proper to be committed to your attention.”
