Erastus Reed to Governor Lubbock, July 1863

seen the depredations of Indians know how to dread
them and when they know our men are taken from
home their raids will be frequent and there will be
little safety for life or property.

If your Excellency will
take these things into consideration and not take
our men from home until their services cannot
be well done without you will confer a favor upon
the people of the frontier.

Very Respectfully
Your Obdt Servt
Erastus Reed
