Abstract:

Letter dated June 7, 1831 from Elizur Butler, Christian missionary living in the Cherokee Nation, to Georgia Governor George R. Gilmer in response to a letter Butler received from Gilmer. Butler explains his purposes in living within the Cherokee Nation. He says that he arrived ten years ago to assist the United States in its policy to "civilize" and Christianize the Cherokee, his only concern is the spiritual good of the Cherokee and not political issues, and he cannot in good conscience take the oath of Georgia since it would acknowledge that the state has jurisdiction over the Cherokee Nation.
