James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Robert Mackay, 1 September 1820

To Robert Mackay

Montpr. Sepr. 1. 1820

Dr. Sir

I inclose a Bill on Mr. Maury for £100 Sterling which will cover your advance1 of $300. and leave a balance of   ,2 which if convenient I shall be glad of by our Court day for this month. I have ventured to draw for that much, as the bill is at 60 days & as I rely on the quality of the Tobo. I have sent, and the amount of the ensurance, to make the payment safe. I have written for a few articles, to come out of the proceeds, of the Tobo. which in case of its deficiency will not be sent, or be provided for by a draft on me. Friend[l]y respects
