ANCIENT DOCUMENT

 In the year 1762, Oganastota, a distinguished chief and warrior of the Cherokee Nation, whose memory is still held in great veneration amongst us, made a visit to Great Britain, a notice of which is to be seen in Smollet's continuation of Hume's History of England.  It appears that the then reigning king was so well pleased with the visit, as to furnish him with a certificate, which we transcribe from the original parchment.
