WASHINGTON, Dec. 24th, 1831
Mr. Drew of the Arkansas Cherokees is here. He says a Delegation from his Nation will be here in a few days. Others will be on upon their own business to call upon the Executive to comply with some of the stipulations of the treaty of 1828, for it appears, from the statement of Mr. Drew, that many have not even received their first year's provisions. Other certificates like wise remain unpaid. The object of the Delegation will be to protest against the removal of our people to their country by enrollment. They say they have no good land sufficient for them and for us.--You know it has been reported that this Arkansas Delegation were coming to attempt to sell a portion of our country. Mr. Drew says they have no such foolish project in view. Their object is to save their lands from being overrun by emigrants. Let those who think of enrolling bear that in mind; let them know, also. whether the many promises that are made in them will be fulfilled.--- ED. Cher. Phoenix.
