Copy of a Letter from John Bell Love to Thomas Dillard Love, his brother, and now in my possession.-F.D.Love

Waynesville, Nov. 18th, _____

Dear Brother:

I hasten to mention the official dispatch received from our Ministers a few days ago; after entering on the negotiations with the British Ministers; it was explicitly demanded by the British Commissioners as a sine quo non as the only condition on which they were instructed to treat with America that the United States should undo a way a large portion of the State of Ohio & Territories adjacent, as well as a portion of the Eastern parts of Massachusetts, & the obligation to keep up no defenses either by land or water; on these conditions they are willing to make peace.

I hope every man in the nation will unite in the struggle which is to determine whether the nations are to remain free or be enslaved. We once bought the same proud fool to yield to justice, & we are fully able for the task now. I am,

With love & Respect, &c.

John Bell Love,

(Addressed)

Capt. Thomas D. Love.

Favor per Carter County,

William C. Love

East Tennessee.
