Philad. Novemr. 20. 1807
The turn which the late trials for Treason &c has taken would deter me from troubleing you on that subject. but that I consider it a duty I owe to you & my Country to prevent in as much as I can the renewal of the like projects.
I have reason to beleive many of those Persons implicated with Burr, are about to rendevous at New Orleans again
My Ship Orleans—Captain Toby is to sail in a few days for Orleans. and Mr. rather Doctor Bollman, with two others whose names he did not mention, applied for a Passage on board her—but certainly room could not be found in my Ship for men, who I beleive to have plotted & will again plot treason against our Country—their are other vessels goeing for that City in a few days—one tomorrow—in which these men will no doubt be admitted—
As trifling as this circumstance may appear I consider it my duty to communicate it
I am with high respect Sir Your Excellency’s Most Obed Serv
