This is a letter dated December 8, 1842 from Aaron Jernigan to Charles J. McDonald, Governor of Georgia (1839-1843), stating that he will abide by the governor's order to disband the forces under his command, since Indian activity along the border is thought to have ceased. Jernigan also promises to forward the muster rolls of those forces to the governor as soon as possible.
