I. was not apprised of Your not having a regular discharge from the U. S. Army until recently -- as also the residue of the Captains of the 1st Regt. Geo. Vol. [Regiment Georgia Volunteers] under My Command Stationed at New Echota = I was under the impression that Genl [General] Floyd had given a discharge which here to fore has been a practice with the commanding Genl [General] = until I was informed by Capt. Storey of the Coweta Vol. [Volunteers] That he had no Regular discharge
I therefore with pleasure avail My self Of the Earliest Apportunity [Opportunity] in Manifestation Of the highest regard for the Officers of My redgiment [regiment] in the discharge Of a duty incumbent upon me I. should indeed be wanting in the kind of feeling which is appropriate on Such an Ocation [Occasion] did I not Affer [Offer] Gratefull [Grateful] acknowledgments for the favourable [favorable] Sentiments and kindly feelings implyed [implied] of me by the Afficers [Officers] and Soldiers of the 1st Redgt [Regiment] during Aur [Our] Campaign in the Cherokee Nation --
In the interim I. remain Yours with Sintements [Sentiments] of the highest Consideration
