James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Richard Forrest, 7 October 1808

Washington Ocr. 7. 1808

Dear Sir

I am just favored with yours by Mr. Eno. When I took the liberty of asking your assistance in procuring me a few Merinoes, it was far from my intention to give you the trouble you have been so good as to take. As you are, however, on the spot, I avail myself of your kindness so far as to add a request, that you will have a few more Ewes purchased, if the sale tomorrow should offer bargains similar to those made for me by Mr. Eno. If a ram, apparently young & sound can be included, I shall be the more obliged. We arrived, all well yesterday to dinner. Accept my respects & best wishes.

James Madison
