Richard Peters gives an explanation of the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Cherokee Nation v. State of Georgia (1831). Peters contends that the court was correct in ruling that such a case was not within the court's legal jurisdiction since the Cherokee Nation is not an independent and foreign state. He points to treaties and compacts between the Cherokees and the United States in order to support this decision, particularly the Treaty of Hopewell (1785), and he disagrees with William Wirt, counsel for the Cherokees, who argues to the contrary. Although Peters supports the court's ruling on this matter, he professes sympathy for the Cherokee cause and believes that the Cherokees have been wronged by Georgia and the United States
