Bureau Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands,
Office Ass't Com'r for Ky., Tenn., and Northern Ala.,
Nashville, Tenn., Sept 16th 1865.

I am of the opinion that a liberal adjustment with Genl Pellon as to rents for the present year will be productive of good. He has been a large planter. He will employ nearly one hundred families - will establish schools & churches on his plantations and will I think cooperate most heartily with the Bureau

Very Respectfully
