Mr. L. A. Lee, Publisher,
Murphy. North Carolina.
As a former resident of Georgia,
and a collector for many years of
books relating to the State and
Colony of Georgia, I have been attempting
to lo\ate, wherever possible,
books, pamphlets and newspapers
printed by Cherokee Indians at New
Echota, between 1828 and 1834,
when that settlement was the capital
of the Cherokee Indian Nation,
and before the removal westward of

it thoroughly dry. After it is

from mice, rats, birds and inects.
Well-cured seed corn will yield
much better crop han seed origilally

"Generally speaking, the seed
