1 edition published in 1836 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document begins with a letter from John Ross, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, dated July 2, 1836. Ross denounces the Treaty of New Echota (1835) that was signed by a delegation led by the Ridge Party. Referring to it as "the pretended Treaty", Ross explains that the agreement is not legitimate and claims that it is not supported by the majority of the nation. Ross sets forth reasons against the removal of the Cherokee people to lands west of the Mississippi River and defends himself against various accusations, especially those made by John F. Schermerhorn, a U.S. commissioner. Ross' letter is followed by a memorial of protest, dated June 21, 1836, submitted to the U.S. Congress by a Cherokee delegation led by Ross. The memorial outlines the history of agreements between the U.S. and Cherokees in objection to activities of Georgia against the Cherokee Nation and people. Significant evidence of oppression and mistreatment are offered as evidence of Georgia's overstepping its legitimate authority. The delegation also protests the Treaty of New Echota

Boudinot further highlights the influence Christian missionaries have had in the Cherokee Nation. He urges his audience to distinguish themselves philanthropically by supporting not only the publication of a national newspaper, but also the establishment of a seminary within the Cherokee Nation

[Proclamation] 1833 Jan. 14, Georgia to Charles C. Mills by Georgia ( )
1 edition published in 1833 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document, dated January 14, 1833, is a printed proclamation from Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835), to Charles C. Mills, Principal Keeper of the Penitentiary, and possibly intended for publication. Lumpkin directs the release of two missionaries, Samuel A. Worcester and Elizur Butler, who had been imprisoned for illegally dwelling in the Cherokee territory while refusing to take an oath of allegiance to Georgia. Lumpkin explains his reasons for remitting the sentences of the two men, including fervent appeals by citizens of the Union, but strenuously reasserts the "evil" of their deed. He further asserts that his decision was based on the missionaries' decision to leave their case to "the magnanimity of the state." Despite this characterization of events, the case had already been taken before the Supreme Court (Worcester v. Georgia) and decided in their favor in 1832
