Fredericksburg. May—18th. 1807.
This morning I received the enclosed papers, and a Letter from mr. Skipwith, in which he says, “The President and his Majesty the Emperor, I am persuaded, will save me from becoming a victim to malice and intrigue. My great difficulty continues to be to get my history to their ears.”
I have the honor to be with great Respect, Sir, your obt. Servt.
