|Summary:||This document is a copy of a letter from a delegation of Cherokee leaders, including John Ross, Elijah Hicks, and White Path, among others, to President Martin Van Buren (1837-1841), dated April 13, 1838. The delegation complains to the President that their communications in Washington were unfairly curtailed before they truly began, and the news of this occurrence has caused considerable distress in the Cherokee Nation. They prepared a Memorial to be delivered to Congress in response, and it was signed by over fifteen thousand people. The Memorial is no longer attached.|
