James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Allen, 14 January 1828

Montpellier Jany. 14. 1828

Dear Sir

Yours of the 8th. inst stating the sales of my flour has been recd. It will now be convenient that you apply the proceeds, as far as necessary; to the payment of what is due to yourself and what will square my account for discounts at the bank; leaving the balance for such purposes as I may draw for. The draft in favor of Mr. Ballard succeeding that in favr. of Mr Blades is I presume already known to you. I observe that a small dividend is advertized on the Turnpike shares. Do me the favor to inclose me in the proper form and with the precise amount, a note for placing mine in your hands. With friendly respects

Draft (DLC).
