James Madison Papers

James Madison to Bernard Peyton, 27 October 1828

Ocr. 27. 1828

Dr. Sir

Inclosed is a Renewing note for the Bank, which I presume will arrive in time.

I thank you for your suggestions as to my Tobacco. The Frost did not visit us till we had removed the outstanding from the field. But some of the latest cutting, was a little touched on the Scaffold.

What are we to consider as the effect of the British duty of 3d. a pound on Stemmed Tobo. in the Richd. market for that description? With friendly salutations

J. M
