Abstract:

December 25, 1813, letter from Thomas Brown of Kingston, Tenn., to George Washington Campbell, U.S. senator from Tennessee and chairman of the Senate Committee on Military Affairs, regarding recent Creek War engagements, and militia recruitment and tax collection issues.

Brown reports 1,000 Creeks killed and 600 taken prisoner, with a loss of 21 killed and 100 wounded. He recommends guarding the frontier with regular troops, stating that a call for 2,500 new militia volunteers to replace those whose terms had expired would not be successful. Brown also warns that efforts to collect (probably the direct tax imposed by Congress in August, 1813) in his extensive and impoverished district would be a "vary trobelsome task without much profit."
