CHEROKEE PHOENIX
Thursday April 10 1828
Vol. 1 No.8
Page 3 Col 2b-Col 3a

We have frequently heard of a proclamation issued by Governor Forsyth, in relation to the extension of the criminal jurisdiction of the state of Georgia over that part of the Cherokee Nation which lies within the Chartered limits of that state.--We should suppose that as the Cherokees would necessarily be interested in such a proclamation, every exertion would be used to have it extensively known in this Country.  But as yet we have merely heard of it, and we doubt whether any of our Citizens have seen it.  We would suggest to his Excellency the propriety of publishing his proclamation in this Nation.
