James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Allen, 19 May 1829

May 19. 1829—

Dear Sir

Your letter communicating the sale of my flour was duly recd. but could not be sooner acknowledged. However short of our hopes I am sure that you have acted for the best; and it is quite propable that it has ended for the best. I thank you sir for your obliging managment of the business throughout and will now request that you will let me see the balance at my disposal—Oblige me by a further notice of my acct. with the Bank in the Turnpike debt. I write in bed & with that excuse for what needs excuse

Friendly respects

J. M

I understand there are a few Bls. of flour say abt. 2 loads still to go down.
