To Thomas Jefferson from Caesar Augustus Rodney, 12 December 1808

Wilmington December 12th. 1808.

Hnored & Dear Sir,

Your favor of the 18th inst: was received on saturday. I will take care that Bayley is arrested & brought to punishment. For this purpose I will call on Mr. Stephen in Baltimore, deliver him the indictment, & request his attention to the business. The subject of the Batture I shall take immediately into consideration.

When I last wrote, my determination was to have left this on friday & to have been in Washington on yesterday (sunday) but the sudden & unexpected illness of Mrs. Rodney who is confined to her bed has prevented it. I am all ready & extremely anxious to be at my post especially at such a crisis & will set off the moment I can leave her. With great esteem & respect I remain

Yours Most Sincerely

C. A. Rodney
