Abstract:

This is a letter dated November 28, 1786 from Creek leader Alexander McGillivray to John Habersham, chairman of the commissioners for Indian Affairs in Georgia. McGillivray reports that John Galphin, a mixed blood Creek who served as an interpreter and a liaison between the Creeks and the state of Georgia, and Daniel McMurphy, a Creek agent for the state of Georgia, have arrived in Tuckabatche(e) (also Tuckabatchie) requesting a meeting with the Creek chiefs in order to read them a talk from the governor's board of commissioners. McGillivray complains that McMurphy has not given him a copy of the talk but says that Galphin has informed him of the substance of the talk. He maintains that the Indians do not owe the state anything as they have not breached any treaties, and he warns the state to give up its claims for satisfaction in the form of property or risk renewed bloodshed. McGillivray indicates that he plans to call a convention of the Upper and Lower Creeks for the following April and that John Galphin should plan to attend and deliver a talk that is agreeable to the wishes McGillivray has expressed on behalf of the chiefs.
