Letter from Theophilus W. Cockburn to President John Quincy Adams regarding a proposal to sell land.

La:Grange Alabama January 16th 1828

Mr. Adams Dear Sir.

A petition from some fo our neighbouring Villages; Tuscumbia. & to you for an immediate sale of the Lands -- is not in accordance with the Interest of this Republic- nor with the Interest of the Settlers-

I hope you will let Benton's (?) Bill or Some other Bill go to our relief without any sale--and Sir excuse cold fingers-

Give in fare(?) play and we can hand (?) Reap & Shear (?)

yours respectfully Theo. W. Cockburn
