Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Wednesday, April 14, 1830
Vol. II, no. 52
Page 3, col. 1b-5b

 As the Committee of Indian Affairs in Congress have confidently stated the degradation and ignorance of the full Cherokees, it may be worth while to make one fact known.  the "Memorial of the Cherokee Legislature," inserted in our first page, was written by one who claims, and is considered in this nation, to be a full Cherokee.  Another fact may be of use.  The "Memorial of the Cherokees" which we sometime since published, and which has been copied into many other papers, was not written by one of the "half breeds," or what the committee would call, "new government party."  These two Cherokees learnt the first English word in one of the missionary schools.
