James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Daniel Carroll Brent, 6 September 1815

Wasn, Department of State, Sepr. 6th 1815.

Dear Sir,

I have the Honor to transmit to you, herewith, four letters from Mr. Adams, from No. 2 to 5, inclusively, with their Enclosures, together with a Despatch from Messrs. Clay & Gallatin of the 18 & 24th May, with its Enclosures, and one from Messrs. Adams, Clay & Gallatin, of July 3rd., with its several Enclosures, including a Copy of the late Convention concluded by these Gentlemen with Commissioners of the British Government. Altho’ these papers were all recd at the office by the mail, from the North, of Yesterday, yet they came too late to be forwarded on by that which proceeded to the South. Copies of most, or all of them, and nothing more, with the original Convention, as executed by the Parties, were put into my Hands this morning by Mr. Richard Cutts, who received them from Mr. Gallatin, two or three days ago, in New York. I have the Honor to remain, with the greatest Respect, your faithful, obed sevt.

Daniel Brent.
