Your Letter covering the Resolution of Congress of the 26th of
Having lately received a Letter from the Governor of South Carolina informing me that his State had appointed a Commissioner for the purpose of Carrying that resolution into effect, I laid all the papers relating to that Business before the Council of State. They were of opinion that it required the interference of the Legislature to fix permanent Boundaries between the State and the Indians. I have at the same time the satisfaction to inform Congress that I have no intimation of any Hostile intentions of the Cherokees against the Inhabitants of this State which renders the necessity of appointing a Commissioner to treat with them at this time the less urgent. Should the State of Georgia intimate that the Co-operation of this State will in any manner tend to further the Success of their Negotiations with the Creeks, we will be ready to do anything in our power to assist in carrying the Resolution into effect as far as it relates to them.
