James Madison Papers

James Madison to John Jordan Crittenden, 8 July 1830

Montpellier July 8. 1830

Dear Sir

Inclosed are eighty dollars in discharge of the debt stated in your letter of March 5th. The fraction over the precise sum may be passed to the discount on the notes of the State Bank; notes of the U.S. Bank not being at command. Mrs. Willis joins in the thanks offered for your attention to our interests and in regretting the delay in answering your letter. We had been desirous of finding a conveyance, preferable to that of the Mail; but none occurred. With great & cordial esteem

James Madison
