[Letter] 1827 Mar. 12, Florida Line, to George M. Troup, Gov[ernor of Georgia], Milledgeville, G[eorgi]a by Thomas Spalding( )

1 edition published in 1827 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a letter dated March 12, 1827 from Thomas Spalding, a commissioner involved in drawing the boundary line between Georgia and Florida, to George M. Troup, Governor of Georgia (1823-1827). Spalding describes the great difficulty of surveying the swampy land along the boundary. He also mentions a book by Mr. Ellicott that describes the boundary line and Georgia's geography in general, and he says that the new line is parallel to the old one but falls to the north of it meaning that Georgia will lose some territory that has already been granted. He suggests that the U.S. Congress should in some way confirm the titles of land granted to people in Florida. He says that this is especially necessary since it was a U.S. treaty with the Indians (probably the Creeks) that extended the Georgia line down to Florida in the first place

[Copy of] communication, 1823 Nov. 15, Milledgeville, Georgia [to the State] House [of] Repres[entatives] by Georgia( )

1 edition published in 1823 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document is a handwritten copy of a communication from George M. Troup, Governor of Georgia (1823-1827), to the House of Representatives of the state of Georgia informing them that no provision was made for the compensation of commissioners appointed to attend recent treaties with the Creek and Cherokee Indians. Troup indicates that such an oversight leaves room for Executive indiscretion regarding compensation for said services and the Legislature should always establish a pay rate for any persons appointed for state duty. Another copy prepared for the state Senate appears in tcc487
