Letter from Andrew Jackson to John Thomas

Head quarters 7. M District
New Orleans
10 Feb. 1815

     Majr general Thomas is directed to appoint a guard for the protection of Mrs. Dupree's property against the continued depredations of those under his command; & will consider himself as held responsible for all outrages & injuries that shall be committed by his command in future.
     It has become absolutely necessary that  a stop should be immediately put to those excesses so derogatory to the character of soldiers & so injurious to the citizens as those of which I daily receive complaints.
