[1913 Webster] Note: In this sense, when followed by an infinitive, the latter is commonly without the sign to; as to let us walk, i. e., to permit or suffer us to walk. Sometimes there is entire omission of the verb; as, to let [to be or to go] loose. [1913 Webster] Pharaoh said, I will let you go. --Ex. viii. 28.

[1913 Webster] Note: The active form of the infinitive of let, as of many other English verbs, is often used in a passive sense; as, a house to let (i. e., for letting, or to be let). This form of expression conforms to the use of the Anglo-Saxon gerund with to (dative infinitive) which was commonly so employed.

In the imperative mood, before the first person plural, let has a hortative force. “ Rise up, let us go.” --Mark xiv. 42. “ Let us seek out some desolate shade.” --Shak.
