Your letter of the twentieth of Jan-
uary last came, enclosed to me the other day, under cover
of one from Colonel Jamison, dated at Natchez the fourth
of this month The Colonel was then on his
way to Natchitoches, to assume the duties of his agency,
and I have addressed to him at that place a letter of in-
struction, of which the enclosed is a Copy
You will observe that the removal of
the factory and Agency from Nachitoches to a position
on the Sabine, is deemed by me highly estimable ;
But in as much as it is necessary to place them under the
protection of a military Post, I take the liberty to recom-
mend that orders be given for the establishment of a
small garrison on the Sabine, at or near the Nacogdoches
road crosses the same, and that the factory and agency
be removed to that place as soon as the suitable buildings
can be erected The Inhabitants of the Parish
and Town of Natchitoches have long complained of the
Inconvenience to which they were subjected by the fre-
quent visits of Indians and I really think that the Inter-
