I received the flag sent by yourself and Col. Maxwell. The answer thereto is sent by Messrs. Young and Evans. You can discover the purport and sentiment of the officers. As to my own part I am left at liberty to do for myself. I wish you would be so good as to write Me particularly from under your own hand. Setting forth the terms in a plain Manner, and let Me know what I have to depend on & I shall answer you by the 11th Inst. agreeable to your flag.
