Transcript Hermitage August 7th 1836 Sir, I reached home on the evening of the Lith and was soon surrounded with the papers and letters which had been sent here in anticipation of my arrival. Amongst other important natters which immediately engaged my attention was the requisition of Genl Gaines on Tennesse, Kentucky, Mississippi and Louisiana. Believing that the reasons given for this requisition were not consistent with the neutrality which it is our duty to observe in respect to the contest in Texas, and that it would embarrass the appointment which had been made of the 10,000 volunteers authorised by the recent (page 2) act of Congress, I informed Governor Cannon by letter on the 5th instant, that it could not receive my sanction. The volunteers authorised by Congress were thought competent with the aid of the regular force to terminate the Indian War in the South, and protect our western frontier: and they were the ttfSt calculated apportioned in a manner/to secure these objects. Agreeably
