James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Allen, 16 August 1828

Aug 16. 1828

Dr. Sir

I believe you have not yet included in my acct. what is due for your reception & sale of my flour. Let me know if you please how, with that & any later item in it, the balance stands between us. I have not yet sent my new crop of wheat to the mill, but shall do so & get the flour down as soon as I can. The greater part of the crop, is white wheat & of good quality, tho in yield does not correspond with the quantity of Straw.

Mrs. M. requests you, to send her 2 lbs of best tea, if it be fresh: or as soon as you may have such. She returns you many thanks for the Melon which came safe to hand. It is very large & apparently a very fine one. Its merits will be more fully known when brought to its final test which will be in a day or two

Draft (DLC).
