Fears of French invasion : August 6th, 1801

Had a large Parcel of Papers brought to me
 this Evening by a Stranger
 containing directions in case of an Invasion
 with a Letter from the Bishop requesting
 the Clergy to be attentive and active in the same
 It hurried and affected me a great deal indeed
 It contained directions what is to be done in
 case of a real Invasion - An Account of all
 Stock to be taken & to be removed & c. & c.
