James Madison Papers

James Madison to Hugh Mercer, 12 November 1828

Novr. 12

Your letter of the 2d. inst, was duly recd. and I beg you to be assured of my sensibility to the kindness which it breathes.

The almost entire failure of my Crop of Wheat on which I relied for certain objects, with that of expected payments, will require a resort to some extra resource, & I am much obliged for that held out by your Board. I shall probably need an aid which will not exceed a $1000 and shall shortly make the proper application thro’ Mr. Allen With great esteem and Cordial salutations

Draft (DLC).
