James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Joseph M. Yznardy, 6 June 1801

From Joseph M. Yznardy, 6 June 1801

Baltimore 6 June 1801.


I have delayed, answering the Letter you did me ⟨the⟩ honor to address me on the 14th. ulto., ’till I could ascertain ⟨wh⟩ether among my Papers at Philada., were the accounts you ⟨aske⟩d me to produce. As my absence from the Havana ⟨was inteded⟩ to be short, I loaded myself with very few papers, ⟨&⟩ am sorry to find not, those you ask for. But I have with ⟨me⟩ Copies of my Letters to Mr. Pickering & his answers. By ⟨the⟩se I find, that my drafts were accompanied with regular ⟨acc⟩ounts: Mr. Pickering acquaints me with the receipt of them, ⟨&⟩ as he never hinted to me, that it was necessary to forward ⟨an⟩y other Document, I thought it was, an affaire finie. As I shall depart for the Havana very shortly, I will not ⟨los⟩e a moment after my arrival, to transmit to your Department ⟨reg⟩ular & authenticated Documents of my accounts. I have the honor to be with profound respect Sir Your very obedt. & very Humble Servt.

Jos: M. Yznardy
