James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Hartwell Cocke, 15 November 1827

Novr. 15. 1827

Dr. Sir

I recd. this morning, the inclosed letter brought from Mr. Hilliard’s Storekeeper. I apprized him that I shd. transmit this application to you, having no authority apart from yours. I am under the impression that there was some dissatisfaction at the manner in which Mr. Hilliard had executed his commission. Be so obliging as to take whatever order you judge proper, and consider my decision as involved in yours.

Draft (DLC).
