8 Opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States Delivered by Mr. Chief Justice Marshall, in the Case of Samuel A. Worcester, Plaintiff in Error, Versus the State of Georgia
Washington DC Gales and Seaton 1832 First Edition Disbound Good 
Disbound pamphlet with browning and wear. Pamphlet is together but fragile. Important Supreme Court case in which the Court found for Samuel Worcester, missionary to the Cherokee Indians who had been imprisoned by the State of Georgia. Worcester asserted that Georgia had no jurisdiction over the Cherokee who were a sovereign nation. The Court found for Worcester, though the ruling did not stop the removal of the Cherokee from Georgia and the resulting Trail of Tears. Stephen Breyer discusses the importance of this case at some length in his new book. This pamphlet exists in two formats. This is the 20 page version without Justice McLean's opinion. Howes M318.

Square and securely bound. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 23 pages; This early tourist guide to Cherokee NC is a stated Second Edition.

Letters and Conversations on the Cherokee Mission. Revised by the Publishing Committee, (Tuttle, Sarah)
13 (Tuttle, Sarah) "By the Author of Conversation on the Bombay Mission" Letters and Conversations on the Cherokee Mission. Revised by the Publishing Committee
Boston T. R. Marvin for the Massachusetts Sabbath School Union 1830 Revised Edition Hardcover Very Good 
Full leather with gilt tile on black panel on spine. Some edge, corner and suface wear but overall in remarkably attractive condition. There is a slight cant to spine but binding is secure with no tears or parting. There is an old dampstain on the lower area of the back cover that has caused a slight drkening of the leather and left a stained area on the rear pastedown. Former owner's name, address (Penobscot County) and date (1835) on ffep. Interior has some toning, with light foxing or staining on some of the prelims. This copy is in VG- to VG condition. The Preface describes the purpose of the book: "The author of these volumes has collected and arranged a variety of facts, relating to the first mission established by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions among the Indian tribes on our southwestern frontier, in the hope that the attention of children may be arrested." While the book is aimed at a juvenile audience, it still has much firsthand information on the various missions to the Cherokee Indians of the Appalachian areas of Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. The book is presented as a conversation between an older woman and some precocious children with an unlikely interest in mission work. The book is divided into two parts and I cannot determine if it was originally printed in two volumes or only in this two in one version. The information on the missions is not limited to one denomination so that Baptists, Methodists, Moravians and others all get their due. The Brainerd Mission near Chattanooga was the most important, but all of the others, including Spring Place, Oothcaloga, Haweis, Hightower, Willstown and several more, are discussed. (There is also a section on the Cherokees in Arkansas before the Trail of Tears.) The work and adventures of many missionaries, as well as Cherokee converts like Catherine Brown, are discussed in some detail. This is an important book on both the Cherokees and the missionaries who worked among them. WorldCat finds not copies of this edition. Sabin 12465. Not in Hawes. ; Two Volumes in One; 24mo 5" - 6" tall; 122, 116 pages
