Abstract:

This document is a letter from Creek leader Alexander McGillivray, at Little Tallassie (Alabama), to Colonel Joseph Martin, U.S. agent to the Cherokee Nation, dated April 11, 1788. McGillivray informs Martin of the state of relations between the Creeks and the Cumberland settlers who murdered some Creeks while trading with French merchants at Muscle Shoals. Despite this attack, and the retaliation of a party of Creeks, McGillivray indicates his earnest willingness to establish a peace with them. He also mentions relations with the Georgians, with whom he also desires peace, if they demonstrate reciprocal respect.
