To James Madison from Anthony-Charles Cazenove, 19 July 1815

Alexandria July 19th. 1815


Enclosed are two bills of lading of your effets shipped on board the Schr. Nancy Walker for Fredericksburg. Having received no directions as to whom consignd have taken the bills of lading to order & endorsed them in blanc, which requires your filling up the endorsement to the person to whom consignd. I regret the hurry you have been subjected to, as Captn. Walker is now detained till about 1 O’ Clock P.M. & would wait longer if it was object to you.

I am desired to inform you that your Servant has arrived a little too late for the Steamboat. With great regard very respectfully Your most Obedt. Servt.
