To Lieut Colonel Dickson 16th Regiment Commanding
His Britannick Majesty's Forces in the River Mississippi

Natchez, 4th October 1779

We his Majesty's dutiful and loyal Subjects the Inhabitants of the Natchez beg leave to return you our most sincere thanks for your generous and disintersted attention to our welfare in the Capitulation of Baton Rouge.  From every Circumstance We had not, a Right to Expect such Terms and are fully impressed with the Idea that we owe them to the Unexampled bravery of you, the Officers and Men under your Command.  Altho' the unavoidable event of war has reduced you and your Troops to a situation which greatly affects us; yet we have some consolation from your being in the Hands of a brave and generous Conqueror.

We most earnestly wish you that Promotion hereafter which your metit justly demands, and in the mean time every happiness that your present situation will admit of.-
