James Madison Papers

John S. Barbour to James Madison, 18 March 1830

Ho. of Reps March 18th. 1830

Dear Sir

The letter that you addressed me under date the 15th inst: was received yesterday Morning. I passed it to Colo Barbour, who remarked that he had never recd the letter of which you speak of the 2nd or 3rd of March. He farther said that about the date of the letter he received one from Mr Davis of Orange inclosing other letters, which had been broken open on the way. This circumstance induced me to inform the Bank of the fact that it might exercise necessary Caution.

Colo Barbour farther said that his family woud be returning in about ten days & that Mrs Barbour coud take the money to you. It will be sent accordingly unless you direct otherwise. With great Respect Yrs:

J. S. Barbour

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
