Letter to Andrew Jackson from Samuel Carswell

Philada. June 26 1815
in confidence
Dear Sir
    Your favor of the 12th of Sepr. 1814, is received and the contents is duly noted; I am sorry to find that you have not had it in your power to drive out of Louisiana all the adherents to the British Government, as well as those that were in arms against you, for a domestic enemy is much more injurious to the Country than foreign; The vote of thanks of the General Assembly of Louisiana, is received in Pennsylvania with disgust, But it is not expected your officers will accept of it; The reason your letter was not acknowledged before this time, was, that it was out of my power to calculate any point to meet you at. The present is to request your age which will confer a particular favor on Your ob. Hble. Sert

Saml Carswell
