W.H. Secrest to Sam Houston, 1837

[The following paragraph is probably an endorsement written by a government official.]

The Secy of State will write the Government
of the U States and urge in the strongest terms
the necessity of sending a force, and at
least two companies of mounted men, from
the U States, to Keep the Caddo in check
beside an Infantry force at Nacogdoches.

The last treaty between them and the
U States threw them upon us, with feelings
of hostility against all americans -- They re-
gard us, part of the american family.

The Treaty demands all that we
solicit! our demand should be heard.
