Date 1793
Author Name Chief Sick King (primary)
Recipient Name James Seagrove (primary) Location: Georgia
Summary Undated letter, presumably written during spring or summer of 1793, translated by Langley Bryant with sworn testimony by Joseph Ellicot, surveyor, that the document is an exact copy. Addressing James Seagrove Creek Indian Agent, the Sick King of the Simanolla gives assurances that his people will not join the mad people and go to war against the whites. His people are not like those in the mad towns; his towns never use the white people ill; always use them well and always will. He speaks with one tongue and with truth. Seagrove's talk is good talk and won't dry up with the Simanola. Believes it is best to have peace.
