James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Jarvis, 11 August 1807

Lisbon 11 Aug. 1807


Since my last respects ⟨of⟩ the 4th. Instant nothing worthy of notice has reached here but the articles of peace between France Russia, & Prussia: which as they were conveyed to me under the ⟨s⟩ame cover with the inclosed letter from Mr Erving; I presume they are therein inclosed of course shall not increase the bulk of this letter by sending a ⟨c⟩opy. A report is in circulation to day that a Messenger from the British Govmt. arrived in Paris the 9th: but it appears ⟨to⟩ want confirmation. With entire Respect I have the honor to be Sir yr Mo. Ob. Servt.

Wm. Jarvis
