Abstract:

This is a letter dated June 30, 1784 from Creek leader Alexander McGillivray to an unidentified Georgia official (possibly John Houstoun, Governor of Georgia, 1784) regarding reports of Georgians surveying land on the Oconee River that the Fat King and the Tallassie (also Tallassee) King had supposedly ceded. McGillivray says that he called a general council, where the Tallassie (also Tallassee) King said in his own defense that he and the Fat King had been threatened with death by the Georgians in Augusta unless they signed away the land in question. McGillivray also says that in 1782, General Anthony Wayne and Alexander Martin, Governor of North Carolina (1782-1785, 1789-1792), sent a "liberal and generous" talk to the Nation which he embraced as a gesture of peace but the wording was later ignominiously changed to depict the states as "conquerors." McGillivray calls on the states to change their attitude towards the Creeks immediately and to respect their position as a free nation if they expect to avoid an Indian wa.
