I return the paper containing Col. Hammond’s account of the battle of Eutaw. He does not reside in Missouri; but has returned to Georgia or S. Carolina.

Messrs Scott or Benton may probably be able to answer your inquiry more satisfactorily than I can—having only known Col. Hammond as a public man, but very little as a private one, in Missouri

Very respectfully

David Barton
