We take leave to present to you, a Resolution of the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Tennessee—with a request, that you will be pleased to adopt such measures, as will most speedily carry into effect, the Object of the Resolution—

At present there are Verry few houses of accomadation, on the road from Nashville to Natchez—nor can there be any established without the assent of the Indians—With you alone rests the power, of obtaining their assent—

The traveling on this road is verry great, of Course the Suffering of our fellow Citizens who have much Communication with Natchez and Orleans must be in proportion—

We are induced to hope with confidence the Success of Our application—from your Uniform attention to the Wants—and patronage of the interests, of our Western fellow Citizens—for which we take this Occation to express—our Sincere gratitude

With Sentiments of Verry high Consideration—
