To James Madison from Thomas Auldjo, 24 August 1802

From Thomas Auldjo, 24 August 1802

Cowes 24 August 1802


I embrace the opportunity of a Ship bound direct for Philadelphia to advise that our Crop of Corn is half saved in these parts & in exceeding good order from our having had no rain for these three weeks & we only want a Continuance of favorable weather to secure abundance. Our prices are now nominal, there being little grain of any Sort at market. The prices are about 8/ Pr Bushel for good wheat but we must soon have a Considerable decline. I have nothing to say relative to the Navigation & interests of America. Every thing goes on as usual. I pay due attention to your Circular of 1st. Augt. 1801 & the papers it refers to. I am with respect Sir your obd hble Servant

Thomas Auldjo
