Now, sir, I appeal to you, in the name of the loyal men and federal soldiers of the State, who stood firm to the cause of the Union in the dark days of the rebellion, for protection, which they so justly deserve and now demand from the government. Very respectfully,

THOMAS WATERS. Hon. W. B. STOKES.

This paper gives a truthful statement of many outrages perpetrated in the middle division of Tennessee. I therefore most respectfully forward the same to the Secretary of War.

W. B. STOKES.
