Pass Christian, Miss.
13 Sept. 1837

Sir,

I have the hour to report the arrival of sixty Creek volunteers from Tampa Bay; the officer in charge informed me, the remainder are on their way hither; so soon as they arrive, mustered out of service and paid off there will be nothing to detain us from moving. The sickness of New Orleans can easily be avoided with the aid of the civil authority, to prevent the Indians from straying, we can pass through, with but a few hours detention.

The mustering out officer and pay master will be here in a day or two. I hope your views as to an early movement will be given as soon as practicable.

I am Sir,
Your Obt. Servt.
