|Summary:||This document is a letter written by Governor John Sevier of Tennessee (1796-1801) to Cherokee Agent Silas Dinsmore, dated January 13, 1797. Sevier wrote the letter to inform Dinsmore that a man by the name of Abraham Martin reported that, while on his way to Cumberland, he lost a horse. Martin had reason to believe the horse was stolen by some Cherokees, and Sevier urged Dinsmore to inquire about the matter within the Cherokee nation and return the horse if possible.|
