James Madison Papers

To James Madison from William Eustis, 11 July 1810

From William Eustis

War Department July 11. 1810.


I have the honor to enclose a return exhibiting the several posts & stations occupied by the troops with their numbers & commanding officers.

No further information has been received from Governor Harrison. In a conversation with a gentleman well acquainted with the country & with the state disposition & power of the Indians I have been encouraged to believe they will not commence hostilities: the movement of the troops on the Western waters will nevertheless be calculated to meet the emergency. I am with perfect respect Sir, your obedt. Servt.

W. Eustis

RC (DLC); letterbook copy (DNA: RG 107, LSP). Enclosure not found.
