[General] Coffee I have dispatched Mr Fowler to Milledgeville to draw the funds deposited with Mr Bozeman by Genl. [General] Coffee for the use of the Guard. Immediately after the departure of Genl. [General] Coffee from this place I set out with a command, to visit the most important points of the Nation, at the same time I detached a command under Sergt. Parker across the Mountain Our return to Head Quarters were simultaneous & our reports, of the situation & good order of the Country pretty much the same. The Indians are perfectly tranquil.

I am with Due respect Your Excellencys Humbl. Serv. [Humble Servant]
