James Madison Papers

James Madison to Hubbard Taylor[?], 31 July 1830

July 31— 1830

In the acct of Mr Harrow inclosed in yours of the 27 Ult. I find an error charging me for the year 1826. I return the acct. with the rect. for that year. As the error appears to proceed from another hand, it is possible that Mr Harrow in tracing may discover others. I am under a faint impression that my last payment was of still later date, but as I observe no rect. for it, I shall infer that I am mistaken if the Books of Mr H. do not shew the contrary. The 4 dollars overpd. may be credited for the year 1830.

Excuse the trouble I am giving you by the small matters & accept my cordial respects

Draft, written on a receipt: "Recd. of Hubbard Taylor, by the hands of Col. Ths. Minor $25." (DLC).
