James Madison Papers

Richard Bache to James Madison, December 1825

My dear Sir:

A draft of Mr Todd’s, for three hundred dollars, has come to my hands, which I took to prevent his arrest and imprisonment, with the perfect assurance, that it would gratify yourself & Mrs Madison, in avoiding so disagreeable a circumstance. I hope that I have not been inconsiderate in the business, & that it will be perfectly convenient for you to pay it. I have not mentioned the circumstance to Mr Todd, as I understand he is without funds. With my best respects to Mrs Madison & the highest esteem for yourself I remain Yrs truly

Rich Bache
