|Summary:||This document is a letter from Archibald Roane, Governor of Tennessee (1801-1803), to Colonel Henry McKinney, in Jackson County (Tennessee), dated April 28, 1802. Roane informs McKinney that he has information regarding the recent depredations committed by inhabitants of Jackson County and is fearful of reprisal by the Indians in the area. He indicates his intention to placate the Indians, but urges McKinney to seek criminal charges against the perpetrators, despite any deals they may have made to avoid justice. He refers to an enclosure from Mr. B. Blackburn that is no longer attached. Another letter from Roane relative to this issue also appears in the Southeastern Native American Documents Database as ch018 .|
