Status: Needs Review

promised quiet Possession of our Lands & redress of our Grievances
That we might claim the land a great way beyond where we
propose to Run the Line, but Chuse much Rather to part with
it than have any disputes concerning it; & that we are a poor
People dependant upon the Woods for our Support, & without
the means of redressing ourselves but by Violence which we
do not Choose to exercise against our Brothers. He will Certain-
ly write to the Governors of Virginia & North Carolina urging
Strongly the Reasonableness of our demand & the Necessity
of sending People of Consequence to meet us to put it in exe-
cution.

Brothers

What I have now to say is also to be sent to
our Father Captain Stuart. Our Enemy from the Northward
has attacked us this year in all parts of our Country in greater
Numbers & more frequent that we have ever known. we desire
to know if they are Sett on by any Body & by whom. We
know they Trade with the English & from them get their Hat-
chets which are very Sharp, & have been lifted up against White
as well as Red Men in our Nation. We beg the favour
of our Father Captain Stuart, to Contrive that they may be
told that the Cherokees send to ask for a Peace from their Town
House in Chote where Peace has been made before. Belts of
Whampum & Pipes exchanged, & Tobacco smoaked.

We will send to them ourselves & employ other Nations
with whom we are at Peace to sue for us & shall be glad
if it can be obtained, but if not we hope our Brothers will
take their Hatchetts back again.

Here another String of Beads was
given.
