James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Thomas Jefferson, 3 January 1808

Sunday Jan. 3. 08.
Th: J. to J. M.

I think we were under impressions last night which the papers did not justify. No single act was specified as a cause of complaint. No obstacle was stated to have been opposed to Mr. Rose’s landing & coming on. What we did, was well, but I doubt the expediency of sending a vessel. It might shew too much empressement to gratify punctilios not explained to us. These thoughts are merely for consideration. Affectionate salutations.
