James Madison to Nelly Conway Madison Willis, 20 March 1832

20th March. 32.

Dear Nelly

I recd the within letter from Mr Lee yesterday & that from Dr Hawes this afternoon. I enclose a check in your favour for $725 retaining from your moity $100 to replace the advance a few years ago for your share of the remittance to Kenty. for taxes, called for by a friend when you were not at home. I was obliged to borrow the money & have been paying the interest since, & still am. The Acct of Mr Crittenden* proved to be $80 instead of as I supposed $70. I take for granted that the occasion of replacing the advance will be convenient to you not it may await another remittance from Kentucky Affecy.

J. M.

*I understand the payts to Mr C was for costs as well as fees I will examine & apprise Mr Lee.
