GOV. MARTIN TO GENERAL McDOWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

August 4th, 1783.

Sir:

I am informed that there are some Cherokee prisoners in Rutherford or Lincoln Counties, or somewhere in Morgan District. That the Indians may have no excuse in surrendering the white prisoners among them, You will please to order all such Indian prisoners to be given up to Colonel Martin, that he may send them to the Nation in exchange for ours.

I am, &c.,
ALEX. MARTIN.
