Summary James Seagrove - Indian agent in the Southern Department - states that General McGillivray has removed himself from the Creek land, and that he has been replaced by an agent of the Spanish, Captain Olivar. He states that Olivar is entreating the Creek to give no land to the Americans, and to have nothing to do with them. Mentions that Olivar is surely overstepping his bounds, and is also a drinker.
