Representative Chamber March 2d. 1815
Having determined to retire after the termination of the present Session, I am desirous of aiding in carrying into execution the treaty lately entered into with the Creek Indians, should the bill now before the House be enacted into a law. I will with great pleasure accept the appointment of one of the commissioners to assertain & fix the boundary. I think it would be pleasing to many reputable Citizens of No. Carolina to have a commissioner on this subject. My object if appointed shall be to have the business done well & speedily. On all subjects connected with Surveying I have had Much experience I am your Most Obt. Set.
