James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William C. C. Claiborne, 7 February 1806

New Orleans 7. February 1806


I learn from Captain Turner, that the Marquis of Casa Calvo did not visit Adais, nor is it understood, that he made Enquiries concerning the Posts; of which he spake to me.

The proposition for a military Gentleman to accompany the Marquis to Adais, came from me; but since the arrangement was not approved, I am well pleased that the visit was not made. I am Sir, with respect & Esteem Your humble Sevt.

William C. C. Claiborne
