James Madison Papers

To James Madison from James Maury, 5 August 1807

Liverpool 5 Augt. 1807

Dear Sir,

I inclose in this this invoice, bill of parcels & bill of lading of your cheese, which I hope will prove as I wish. I recollect your father used sometimes to order his cheese to be inclosed in lead & as this mode of packing them secures better than any other against the effects of heat on the passage & the package is almost always worth its first cost, I have taken the liberty to put them up in this way.

The letters for Mrs. Thornton were duly forwarded. I am dr. Sir, your’s truly

James Maury
