Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Wednesday, February 3, 1830
Vol. II, no. 42
Page 3, col. 2a

 From a letter received in this place from a gentleman of intelligence, and from our exchange papers which come to us from different sections of the country, we have the utmost assurance in saying that the Indian cause is gaining ground.  There is a great excitement on this subject and this excitement is extending.  Meetings have been held in New York, Philadelphia, New Haven, and Hartford, and memorials to Congress adopted-other meetings in other places will be held.  From the abstract of the debate in the House of Representatives, on the question of referring the New York memorial to the Committee on Indian Affairs, which our readers will find in another part of our paper, there can be but little doubt that the question will be brought before the consideration of Congress.
