Philadelphia Sept. 24th. 1806.
Honored & Dear Sir,
I am induced by the present situation of affairs with Spain, to enclose you two letters received by this days mail from my father. I presume, no doubt, you have received official intelligence on the subject to which they relate, but I wish to throw in my mite, at so interesting a period. If they are serious in re-occupying their former positions, it must be connected with some hostile plan of greater entent. Government are no doubt fully capable of penetrating & defeating their machinations. With great esteem I am D. Sr Yours Very Sincy
C. A. Rodney
P.S. Please to return the letters.
