James Madison Papers

James Madison to William Allen, 23 May 1834

May 23d. 1834—

Dr. Sir

I have just recd. your favor of the 21t: I regret the circumstance that my acct. with the Bank was overdrawn, It may have resulted from some inadvertent confusion between my acct. with you & that of the Bank—I thank you for the blank note inclosed in your letter, I take the liberty of filling it with the sum of 500$ I had hoped that the late accommodation from the Bank would have releived me from such a necessity, should this further aid be obtained be so good as to detail the amt. in the proper manner, between my acct. with you & the Bank. In the event of any failure I wish to hear from you without delay———I am now hurrying my Tobaco to Richd. and altho’ the quality of some of it very good the crop proves to be much short of my expectation owing to the unfavorableness of the latter part of the season. Friendly respects


Draft (DLC).
