Title: 1813 July 23, Creek Path [to] Colonel Return J. Meigs, Highwassee
Author : Kanchestaneskee
Date Created: 1813-07-23
Abstract: This document appears to be a letter to Return J. Meigs dated July 23, 1813 composed by several Cherokee chiefs at the request of Pathkiller, the principal chief, to inform Meigs of the growing Creek civil war. The letter tells that the town of Tooquachee (Toocabatchee) in the Creek Nation, where four different tribes of Indians once held friendly conferences, has been taken from Creek chief Big Warrior and destroyed. While Big Warrior is considered a "friendly" Creek, the letter states that the majority of Creek Nation has gone against him to join the rebel party. The Cherokees indicate that they have information that one of the prophets partly responsible for the uprising has escaped to the Choctaw Nation. Included is a warning from Big Warrior to the Cherokees to arm themselves against the rebellious Creeks along their borders.

Title: The Haunted Spring
Arranger : Leopold Meignen, 1793-1873
Date Created: 1838
Abstract: This piece of sheet music is included in a bound volume that belonged to Tennessee resident, Miss Nora Gardner. This piece is "from the Songs of the Legends and Traditions of Ireland" and is arranged for the Guitar. It seems like an Irish variation on popular fairy tales involving mythical ladies luring unsuspecting people to their deaths. The creation date of 1838 is questionable. This piece was published during the span of 1840 through 1855, which has been inferred from the years during which the publisher operated under the specified name and location, as listed in the Handbook of Early American Sheet Music 1768-1889 by Harry Dichter and Elliott Shapiro (Dover, 1977).
