James Madison Papers

To James Madison from James H. Henry, 25 February 1806

New York 25 February 1806.

Sir,

Having when at Madeira selected some Wine for the purpose of presenting a few friends in Virginia of which I have one remaining Pipe and as I intend sailing from hence for the above Island where I shall in all probability spend the remainder of my days, on or about the begining of the ensuing month I shall feel a particular gratification in your acceptance of the same, and you will add to the obligation by informing me to whose care in Norfolk or Alexandria I may order it to be sent you previous to my departure as vessels bound from this place directly for the City of Washington but seldom offer. I remain with great respect Sir Your Most Obedt. Servant

James M. Henry
