τὸ σπεύδειν: for the superfluous art., cp. O. C. 47(“τοὐξανιστάναι”) n.

σοι καὐτῷ: the “καί”=‘both,’ yet can follow “σοι” because the thought is, ‘I recommend haste to you, both in your own interest and in that of your friends.’— πέρι: a very rare addition to the gen. with “κήδομαι”: as a general rule, however, verbs of ‘caring’ can take either the simple gen. or gen. with prep. (as “φροντίζω, μέλει”, etc.).
