The title of this government document is "Creek Indians - Memorial of The Head Men and Warriors of the Creek Nation of Indians". This document is an appeal by the Creek Nation to the legislature of Georgia in response to a bill under consideration that would set in motion the fourth article of the Treaty of Indian Springs (January 8, 1821) that would give money to citizens of Georgia for claims against the Creek Nation. The Creek delegation say that the funds considered in this fourth article are actually due to the Creek Nation and that the claims of Georgia's citizens have already been settled. They further argue that the current claims are without foundation and offer other reasons against the passage of the bill. They ask that the U.S. uphold the treaty agreement by finally paying the sum promised to the Creek Nation in 1821. The Creek leaders were responsible for this memorial are Opothle Yoholo, Tuckabatchee Haijo, Tuckabatchee Micco, Benjamin Marshall, George Stiggins and Agent John H. Brodnax.

This is a delicate but important historical document.
