James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Sylvanus Bourne, 26 October 1802

From Sylvanus Bourne, 26 October 1802

Baltimore Octr. 26th. 1802.


The situation of Mrs. Bourne’s health since my arrival from Europe has hitherto retarded my intended visit to Washington, but I have now the hopes of being shortly enabled to proceed thence in order to pay my Respects to Govt. & arrange some little matters of business I have there.

I can have nothing materially new to communicate as accounts from Europe of a much later date than that of my departure must have reached you, bearing the more recent intelligence from that Quarter. With the highest Respect I am yr Ob Servt.

S. Bourne
