James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Willis, 6 August 1803

From William Willis, 6 August 1803

Barcelona August 6th. 1803.

Respected Sir

I have just had a [. . .] that an English master of a Vessell here has a Set of American Papers. I shall try to [. . .] them from him if I find it true, that he has them and Endeavour to find where he got them. My suspicions are that the English Vice-Consul who is a Catalan, may have furnish’d him with them or that he may have got them from Mills, as he is very intimate with him. It is late this afternoon which is Satturday. I shall on Monday make application to the Captn. General to Have the English Captain Examined.
