James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Augustus Woodward, 4 September 1806

Detroit, Sept. 4. 1806.

Mr. Wagner’s letter of the 9. of august I had the pleasure to receive. The mail to Pittsburgh is very large, and I believe no inconvenience would ⟨r⟩esult from the transmission of the package for me by mail.

I have to acknowledge the reception of the Acts of Congress, for which I am very grateful.

I am very sorry our own laws are not here.

Will Mr Wagner do me the honor to favor me with a line on this subject?

Nothing can ex⟨ceed⟩ the tranquility, spirit⟨s,⟩ and public satisfac⟨tion⟩ of this country. My sincere respec⟨ts⟩ await the Secretary of State.

A. B. Woodward
