Balto 27th. June 1808
Having found the receipt for the articles sent, I have thot it best to forward it to you, altho’ I am informed the vessel is arrived, & no doubt they are safely delivered—
The English news papers appear very anxious that this Country & France, shd. be in actual war—no doubt the French, breath the same language between America & England—but it is to be hoped, neither will be gratified.—
Yrs. very sincerely
