§ To Richard Harrison

14 April 1804, Department of State. “The Secretary of State presents his respects to the Auditor and encloses him a letter from Mr. Savage Agent of the U. States at Jamaica, with sundry documents explanitory of his accounts.1 The Secretary of State will thank the Auditor for an intimation of the result of these explanations in order that2 may be communicated to Mr. Savage as soon as convenient.”

Letterbook copy (DNA: RG 59, DL, vol. 14). 1 p.

1This was probably William Savage to JM, 4 Feb. 1804 (PJM-SS description begins Robert J. Brugger et al., eds., The Papers of James Madison: Secretary of State Series (7 vols. to date; Charlottesville, Va., 1986–). description ends , 6:431–32).

2The State Department clerk evidently omitted a word here.
