Title: Isaac T. Reneau in Tompkinsville, KY to Andrew Johnson in Nashville, TN

Reneau identifies himself as the descendent of the Tiptons and the Reneaus of East Tennessee. He requests that by "all that binds loyal man to loyal man, gentleman to gentleman, and Christian to Christian" Johnson never let anyone know his name or his life would be forfeit to the ambition of Hamilton and Ferguson.
