Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Sevier, 10 April 1807

Knoxville 10th April 1807.


Your letter of 21 March ult, with the enclosed copies of the act of Congress I have been duly honored with—

Be assured Sir, I shall avail myself of all the Means in my power to promote and expedite the raising of the Volunteers contemplated by the Law; and I entertain no doubt a number of Mounted Infantry and Cavalry will engage in the Service, and should there be any necessity for active operations, which I hope providence may avert, I shall myself most cordially engage in the enterprize—

I salute you with very great consideration, esteem, & respect.

John Sevier
