Abstract:

This document contains two letters, the first dated April 24, 1785 and the second undated, from Creek leader Alexander McGillivray in Tuckebatches (also Tuckabatchie, Tuckabatchee) to treaty commissioner William Clark. In the first letter, McGillivray complains that a talk sent to the chiefs in the lower towns should not have been sent directly to them. He tells Clark that the chiefs will not be called to meetings by traders or other unauthorized persons. He goes on to say that he opposes white settlement of the lands near the Oconee River, because he thinks that the settlers will eventually claim land down to the Ocmulgee River as well. McGillivray mentions Governor Samuel Elbert (Governor of Georgia, 1785-1786) and warns that he must put a stop to trade houses in Creek territory or they will be attacked. In the second letter, McGillivray reports that he is setting off for Pensacola and then (New) Orleans for an important meeting called by Bernardo de Galvez, Governor of Spanish Louisiana (1777-1783) and Viceroy of New Spain (1785-1786). McGillivray also reminds Clark that he has yet to make good on his promise to visit Tuckabatchee (also Tuckabatchie) and smoke the peace pipe.
