James Madison Papers

Joseph C. Cabell to James Madison, 1 September 1828

Warminster. 2 Sepr. 1828.

Dear Sir,

Your favor of 18 Ult., reached me by the last mail. On the subject of the Tilghman white wheat, I deem it proper to write you by the return of the mail, in order that you may not be put to inconvenience on my account. Having an Agent in Baltimore for the sale of my crops below, I have thought it would be best to get him to send me a parcel of the Tilghman wheat. I presume it can be had in Baltimore or its vicinity, and the conveyance to this place by water is uninterrupted & attended with no trouble; whereas to send by land to your residence would be a serious undertaking. I will therefore withdraw my application to you, & write to-day to my Agent in Baltimore. You were good enough to offer me, when last at the University, some further references on the subject of the Tariff. I would be very much indebted to you for the use of them. Those formerly furnished have been productive of great good, to those numerous persons to whom I have shewn them. Very respectfully & truly yours

Jos: C: Cabell
