[Letter] 1816 May 27, Knoxville, [Tennessee to] Major General Andrew Jackson, Nashville, T[ennessee] by Tennessee( )

This is a letter from Governor of Tennessee Joseph McMinn (1815-1821) to Major General Andrew Jackson, dated May 27, 1816. McMinn discusses the repercussions of the recent treaty with the Cherokees in March of 1816 which returned 2.2 million acres to the Cherokees.
