#12 - James Madison Estimate: $1,000+

ALS as president, one page, 7.75 x 9.75, September 27, 1813. Letter to Senior Officer of the United States Army and former Secretary of War Henry Dearborn, in full: "I have rec'd your letter of the 13th instant. Whatever errors may have been contained in the Statement you had through Mr. Cutts, it is proper to observe injustice to the person from whom the statement comes, that he expressly exculpated you in his censure of the individual acting under you." In very good to fine condition, with a few light stains, a short fold split, and seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf and, to a lesser extent, the left edge. The "Mr. Cutts" referenced is presumably Richard Cutts, Madison's brother-in-law who, after serving for twelve years in Congress, became superintendent general of military supplies from 1813 to 1817.
