Samuel Francis du Pont to Percival Drayton
Du Pont tells Drayton that he has yet to hear anything directly from the Department of the Navy concerning the events at Charleston, but John Rodgers has written from Washington to indicate the possibility of 'a hostile action' against du Pont. Du Pont asks that Drayton go and see James Biddle and Davis, asking the latter as to the possibility of bringing a libel suit again Fulton.
