I went thence to Nashville & spent near
a week there looking after the Charter & putting
out the {illegible} of those discontents {their discontent?}. The
Charter has been perfect & is all we could
wish. But those fellows about McMinn-

proximity. {illegible: Whitesides?} is disgusted with
them & has {illegible: removed?} to Nashville. They
