James Madison Papers

James Madison to [Richard Cutts], 4 August 1828

[Montpelier, Aug. 4, 1828]

I have rec’d yours of July 30 & inclose a letter to Mr. Smith which please seal and deliver, requesting that the property I purchased of the bank & for which the closing payment has been rec’d may be duly conveyed to me. I hope this conclusive evidence will not be without effect on staying the purpose of your creditor in Charleston, to involve me in his chancery experiment.

Extract (Robert F. Batchelder Catalog 78 [1990], item 169).
