James Madison Papers

To James Madison from John S. Barbour, 3 October 1819

From John S. Barbour

Fredg. Octo 3rd. 1819

Dear Sir.

I got an order yesterday from the Chancery Court to take an account of the Rents & profits of the Lands in Fauquier (Mortgaged by Mr Strode) in order to apply the rents so far as they go in discharge of the balance unpaid by a Sale of the Lands. An account will be taken by a Commissioner of this Court & whose report will furnish to the Chancellor the basis of a final Decree. I have no doubt but if the Matter were properly investigated, that you have 160 in lieu of 62 acres of Land. When I again Visit Fauquier Court I will inspect all the title papers & write you. In Haste yrs Most Respfy

Jno. S. Barbour

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
