McMinn informs Rabun that Joseph Vann has complained to him that settlers are encroaching on his estate, and McMinn points out that Vann has a right to remain there unmolested until he is compensated, in accordance with the treaty, for at least the improvements he has made. Since Vann's property lies within the Georgia boundary, McMinn urges Rabun to settle this matter, and he tells Rabun that there are other Cherokees in a situation like Vann's who should be protected against intruders until the government fulfills its pecuniary obligations to them
