Summary:This document is a letter written to Colonel Allison from John Cocke on September 6, 1813. The letter describes a possible meditated attack by the Creek Indians on the people living on the frontier. John Cocke orders Colonel Allison to put the first brigade of the militia on alert to defend the frontier if attacked by the Creeks. Cocke insists on being notified of any attacks or actions taken by the Colonel's brigade and offers expenditures for supplies needed in this defensive action. John Cocke concludes by warning Colonel Allison to not mistreat any friendly Indians, but to treat them with friendship and hospitality.
