James Madison Papers

James Madison to James Barbour, 11 February 1824

Feby 11. 1824

Dear Sir

We are not to forget that our arrangt. with the Bank at Fredg. will require renewal at the close of the present month. I allude to it thus early, as I rely again on the preparatory Step on your part wch you were so good as to take in the first instance. On receiving the two notes with your signatures I will add mine, and send both to Fredg: providing in the meantime, the small sum there due on renewing the discount.

I recd. some time ago a letter from Mr. J. S. B. in which he assured me that the money retained in his hands would be paid in the course of the <Session,> I presu<me> his letter was in consequence of the draft with wch. I took the liberty of troubling you tho’ he made no reference to it. I hope he will be as good as his word; having appropriated the payment to a little object, which I cannot otherwise so conveniently provide for. Yrs. with very best respects & wishes

J. M.
