Woodville March 1st 1825

Dear Sir,

I wrote a letter to you a few days ago by Mr. George Huff by the way of New Orleans, informing you that it was my intention to procure and settle the League of land that you had promised Messrs Huff and Holliman to reserve for me, and will leave here on the first of June next, for your Country for that purpose, and request the favour of you still to retain it for me as I am determined to procure it if possible and no accident happens. Mr. K. Holliman wrote to you by Mr. L. Ramey who is gone with Mr. Huff informing you that he could not go before the first of November next and his reasons etc which you will receive—Mr. Michael Holliman will go with me together with several others all with the same views—The bearer Mr. William P. Perkins is waiting on me and have not time to say more at present but will write again if an opportunity offers for fear of miscareges—
