[M234, roll 290, frame 574]

New Barracks
near New Orleans Lou.
9th July 1838

Sir,

I have the honor to enclose herewith the muster rolls of two small detachments of Seminole emigrants.  The first are those Negroes which I respectfully request will be appended to the rolls in which the remarks are made of stoppage by civil authority of this city.  The commissioner upon reference to the roll of Negroes will observe that a Negro named Silla, belonging to Echu Yoholo was inadvertently not mentioned in the remarks as having been detained; she was properly noticed in the roll transferred to Genl. Arbuckle.  Will you have the goodness to make the necessary remarks in the roll of Negroes transmitted to your Dept.  The requisite remark in the muster roll has been made.

I am Sir
Very Respectfully
Your Obt Servant
