    Alabama State,
    Madison County
    July 6, 1838
    To: John E. Cloud
    Dear Sir:
    I recd. your letter rote the 4th day of June and mailed the 7th in 24
    days which gave me
    great satisfaction to hear that all was well. I duly observed the
    contents of your letter and
    your wishes therein contained and what you said about the land and it w
    thought there
    would be some dispute about the land next to Bowels. and Isaac Aldedge's
    fears about
    making title for fear of a squabble there.
    There is no need as you said of a warranty letter from me as Isaac
    Arledge has the power
    of ---ance to make the letter. Tell him and let him see this letter and
    he may ask Person
    -------- he could be liable in any way whatever, for I am sure every
    Neighbor there knows
    my land nearly as well as I do, say those that lived there when I left
    which was Henry
    Haygood, old Mr. Haygood and old Mr. Powell and sons and General
    Strawther and as it is
    well known.
    Tell Seith Isaac Aldedges to make a warrantee title to you or who may
    wish to purchase
    the land in this ---- say all my rights and claims of land lying on the
    waters of Little Ceder
    Creek which I purchased of the Miles, it being part of a plot of land
    granted to old Look
    Ralls more or less, that to say all my claim, in making this title,
    Arledges will be perfectly
    safe and the purchaser also. And if they say they can't purchase it as
    above stated they may
    be safe by you and them applying in Winsborogh at the office where y
    they, I expect
    will find my land on record, both deed and plat, if I am not mistaken,
    which will enable the
    purchaser to know the land. I had two hundred and six acres and three
    quarters to best of
    my recollection.
    I have bin thinking how there can be any dispute in the land next to Mr.
    Bowel's, if mine is
    it must be at the lower part of his plantation next to where William
    Broom lived. I bot a
    small plot of land of Wm. Miles I believe it was about an acre or two b
    forget whether I
    ----------------on a branch below Bowels field by the branch is the li
    between me and Miles
    old place. I bot it to have excess to the water and give at the
    ----------dollars per acre. The
    branch as I have already stated was the line for a small --------the la
    maybe known it is a
    small piece of low ground on the west side of the branch and lies low
    and level, just below
    old Mr. Bowels plantation. I also had a small quantity (of land) on the
    east side of the same
    branch and one of my corners is just below the piece of low ground abo
    named and on the
    east side of the branch next to Wm. Miles place which a Mr. Robinson
    owned when I left
    that state.
    The least I was offered for my land when I was on it was eleven
    hundred dollars all down.
    This was offered by Mr. Powell & Caleb Powell son of old Mr. Powell kno
    my land as
    well as I did and if yet alive can show the whole of it if he would.
    Give my complement to Mr. Powell and tell him to be so good as to sh
    my land to
    anyone that wants to purchase and in so doing he will much oblige one w
    wishes him well.
    John tell Arledge to make a letter to all my right of land laying in
    Fairfield District, more of
    less, and if they wish to purchase , the land being well ----- will make
    no difference but they
    will still say they are afraid to purchase on the above named way
