Abstract:

This is a letter dated September 16, 1786 from Creek leader Alexander McGillivray to an unnamed Georgia official. McGillivray says that he recently received a letter from John Galphin, a mixed blood Creek who served as a liaison and interpreter between the Creeks and the state of Georgia, requesting that McGillivray meet him in Tuckebatches (also Tuckabatchie, Tuckabatchee) to receive some dispatches from the Georgia commissioners, but that when he arrived Galphin refused to meet with him in person. McGillivray warns the recipient of this letter to therefore disregard any report that Galphin may give him, as he is inexperienced in dealing with the Indians in an acceptable manner. He writes that, if the commissioners are serious about peace, they should prove it by ordering white settlers on Creek hunting grounds near the Oconee River to leave the area. McGillivray is adamant that this is the only way to satisfy the Creeks and prevent war.
