Thomas G. Stubblefield to Abner Lipscomb, November  1840

have not yet been able to finish the Surveys
however I have removed the Coushatta and
the Alabama Tribes on their respective lands
as designated in the commencement and they
all appear to be satisfied with their situations
Mr Jewell the surveyor has lately promised
me that so soon as his health will permit
that he will come up and unite with me
and finish this business -- Should any thing
happen to prevent his comeing agreeable to promise
I should like to be clothed with such powers
as will enable me to go on immediately and
finish the surveys in time to make a return
thereof to your department before the
adjournment of the present Congress -- at
all events I hope to be able to complete this
engagement in a few weeks --

I have the honour
to be Yours Most Respectfully
Thos G Stubblefield
Indian Agent
