New Orleans Lou.
10th March 1839

Sir,

I have the honor to state that the Capt. Morrison has reached Fort Jackson, a station of some sixty or eighty miles below this city.  Capt. Morrison will proceed west with the party under his charge consisting, I am informed, of two hundred and upwards in number.  I shall proceed immediately to Tampa Bay, where I shall be, as I have been, for the last six months unemployed - indeed Sir, there is no necessity for the employment of two officers on the Seminole Emigration.  I have therefore to request that my services may be dispensed with and orders issued for my recall, to settle my accounts.  

I am Sir,
Very Respectfully
Your Obt, Servt.
