Summary: Warning him against an undesirable immigrant.

Natchitoches Oct. 24th 1824

Mr. S. F. Austin

Sir Altho I am unacquainted with you I take the liberty of guarding you against a Man by the Name of John Cooke who ran away from this place a few months since and left me as his Security for a constableship, involved in the sum of two thousand dollars—he is an Irish man about 5—10 high and has a lump on his forehead stout built, and slightly pochd marked black hair- he is a rascal undoubtedly and will impose himself on you.—
