Cumberland Gap:                                     Sep. 11. 1863

Yours received. A thousand thanks for the late sucesses you have given us.

We can not allow you to resign until things shall be a little more settled in East-Tennessee. If then, purely on your own account, you wish to resign, we will not further refuse you
