James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Richard Cutts, 3 May 1806

May 3, 1806

Dear Sir,

I have letters from Monroe of the 11th. of March. He had conversed with Fox & Gray at some length, and found both not only well disposed; but avowing opinions which flattered his hopes of an adjustment of the most difficult points. Still nothing was avowed as the decision of the Cabinet. On the whole our prospect at that quarter is not unfavorable. You can’t expect me to dwell long on the subject, as you perceive me so pinched between the --- --- of my wife. As you are not so much in the same situation, I shall expect something from you less cramped &c &c Yrs truly

J. Madison
