James Madison Papers

James Madison to Alexander Garrett, 5 December 1828

Decr. 5. 1828

Dear Sir

The documents sent in consequence of my request of Novr. 21. came safe to hand. The acct from July 1828 to the last Session of the Board in Octr. was unnecessary it being decided to limit the annual report for the Legislature, to the year from July 1827. to July 1828 only. What is particularly wanted, not being in the hands of Mr. Trist nor yet recd. from you is the acct. from July 1827. to Decr. 1827. when the acct sent me begins Thus I must ask the favor of you to put in with the acct herewith sent for Decr. of 27 and under cover to the Govr. and then seal & forward the dispatch by mail to Richd. Mr. Trist informed me that he had written to you to forward the wanted part of the acct: but not havg recd. it, I conclude there has been some mistake or miscarrige, which obliges me to give you this trouble

Draft (DLC).
