James Madison Papers

From James Madison to Edward Coles, 9 February 1816

Feby 9. 1816

Dear Sir

I wrote you a few lines two days ago, inclosing a letter from Mrs. M. I this moment discovered that instead of "Jamesville" it ought to have been addressed to “Statesburg”. This information may prevent its miscarriage. The inclosed papers give the last accts. from Europe. The Senate have confirmed the nomination of Mr. Pinkney to St. Petersburg: & negatived the special Mission to Naples. It is understood that he will not accept the appt. Affece. respects
