From an Unidentified Correspondent

[ca. 6 July 1812]

Friend Madison.

I advise thee to be cautious and prudent. Massachusetts will not go to war. The union I fear will be shaken if war continues. Enclosed is a paper from which you may judge of the feelings of the People.

Thy friend.

RC (NN). Undated; date assigned here on the basis of a Salem, Massachusetts, 6 July postmark. Docketed by JM, “June 1812.” Enclosure not found.
