Item # 668143

February 16, 1833

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Feb. 16, 1833  The front page has a report concerning a murder in Georgia thought to have been committed by a Cherokee: "The Cherokee Phoenix takes exception...an account of alleged murder of whites by certain Cherokees. We are against all sorts of murder or manslaughter, and must condemn it under whatever color it comes. We are glad to be assured that the Cherokees are in this case innocent of it The following is the Cherokee account of the affair..." and what follows is a report from New Echota on the account.
Four pages, nice condition.
