James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Jesse Atwater, 15 November 1811 (Abstract)

§ From Jesse Atwater

15 November 1811, New Haven. Mentions that “last summer” he understood from Barlow that JM had been informed of his desire for an appointment that would afford “a comfortable support.” Knowing how often the president is pressed by applicants, he proposes to give no further trouble on this occasion beyond soliciting the consulate in London if the vacancy is not already filled.
