Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Wednesday, January 6, 1830
Vol. II, no. 39
Page 3, col. 2b-5c

From the following postscript of a letter addressed to a gentleman of this place, our readers will have another evidence of the unwillingness of the Cherokees to remove.  What will Col. M'Kenney say to this?

 The Cherokees are crowding to sign the memorial.  Before the expiration of many days, every man in Aquohee and Taquohee Districts, who can get within reach of it will have signed.  There was a meeting at Hiwassee last night from which messengers were sent to every town and neighbourhood [sic].  The plan meets with universal approbation-not a dissenting voice- and no chief present.
