Abstract:

This document contains correspondence that concerns various problems on the southern frontier of Georgia. The first letter dated April 20, 1788 from Colonel Jacob Weed on Cumberland Island to General James Jackson regards threats of attack from the British and the Creek Indians. Weed laments the lack of authority necessary to punish wrongdoers and mentions lawsuits pending against him for illegally detaining various persons. He also discusses Panton, Leslie and Co. a trading cooperative and its involvement in providing information to the Creeks. The second item is a copy of a letter dated May 16, 1788 from Weed to Jackson also regarding the dire situation on the island. He requests armaments for his guard boats and also reports on information that Creek leader Alexander McGillivray is calling all parties forth for a treaty meeting. The third item is an extract of a letter from Colonel James Maxwell to General Jackson dated May 27, 1788 in Liberty County, Georgia. Maxwell reports on the attempted theft of slaves by Creek Indians and the failed efforts to bring the alleged thieves to justice. The fourth letter is from James Dunwoody, John Elliott, and Thomas Stevens to General Jackson, dated May 26, 1788 at Newport Bridge. They write on behalf of the citizens in Liberty County, Georgia respecting James Seagrove's request that their rice provisions, already scarce, be sent to Savannah. They request Jackson's intervention on the issue.
