Summary Informs the Governor of Georgia of an unfortunate event harming the state's relationship with the Creek Indians. On December 28th the White Bird-tail king and eight Cussetahs, encouraged by assurances of safety from Mr. Seagrove, were hunting when two of them were treacherously murdered by a party of whites. Three white men had appeared to the Indians without arms. The Indians received and entertained them in a friendly manner and gave them something to eat. After staying some time with the Indians, they left them, and returned, with their arms and the rest of their party, firing upon and killing two of the Indians.
