James Madison Papers

James Madison to Bernard Peyton, 9 May 1829

May 9. 1829

Dr Sir

Yours of Apl. 28 came duly to hand and I thank you for the attention given to mine which it answered. Do me the further favor to pay Mr. Ritch[ie] the annual advance for the Enquirer, due about this time. The enclosed note for it was left with me at my request, by one of the Collect[ors] for that paper, & will do for the receipt.

My overseer tells me he must pause in Sending down my Tobo. for some days. By this time 6 Hhds will be in the warehouse, & he says there will be 4 more of the same, his best Class. You will Judge whether the State of the market advises a sale of what is on hand, or a delay for the chance of its improvement. Should an immediate partial Sale be judged best, no objection lies on my part.

Draft (DLC).
