James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Shippen, 20 March 1808

Philadelphia March 20th. 1808

Dear Sir,

Mr. Dallas has shown me at your request the communication of the french police containing a number of charges against Mr. G. Howell. I have examined also his defence which appear to me fully to refute them. From my long acquaintance with Mr. Howell & from my having had moneyd Transactions with him of importance, where delicacy & good faith were never violated I verily believe the charges are groundless. I have the honor to be Dr. Sir very respectfully Your obed. hum Servt.

W. Shippen
