James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Alexander J. Dallas, 6 August 1815

6 Aug. 1815.

Dr. Sir,

The inclosed paper gives, it is alledged, the sequel of the battle of the 18h. of June, between Bonaparte and the Allies. The report, in the extent stated, is doubted here; but I think it probable, that Bonaparte’s repulse will produce something like a test of his popularity at Paris.

I have written to Mr. Crawford, but no answer has been received. It may be, that he is on his way to visit you. I am, Dr. Sir Most respectfully & faithfully Yrs.

A. J. Dallas
