Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Johnston, Jr., 23 October 1807

Savannah 23rd. October 1807


I have the honor to transmit your Excellency the copy of a Letter from the Officers of the Artillery Company, belonging to my Regiment, tendering their own and Companies services to their Country, as part of the draft ordered, of 100,000 Men.

The roll handed me comprises the names of 64 Men; this Corps is of long standing, and the high encomiums paid them by Genl. Washington when he was in this State, is a pledge that they will not disappoint the expectations of their Country Men, when called out in defence of their Country—

I have the honor to be Your Excellencys Obedt. Servt

James Johnston Jr

Sr. Col. 1st. Regt Georgia Militia
