James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Joel Barlow, 13 June 1809

From Joel Barlow

13 June [1809]

Dear Sir

I send you the books you marked. Likewise a work I before forgot, of which I have a duplicate. It is the French Biographical Dictionary in nine volumes.1 This however you can give back to the man if you dont choose to take it—no harm is done except your trouble of looking at it—as he can bring it back in the carriage. Yr. obt. Sevt.

J. Barlow
