Letter from John Blunt to William S. Pope, 1833

Date
1833-05-03
Description
Letter from John Blunt, chief of the Apalachicola Indians, to Judge William S. Pope regarding a robbery that occured at his house. Blunt is pleading to Pope, the local Indian agent, to come help him retreive his money and belongings. During this time, white settlers from Georgia, Alabama and Florida repeatedly harassed the Apalachicolas by stealing their livestock and slaves, despite Blunt's long-standing cooperation with the Americans. Officials seemed powerless or unwilling to stop these raids on the Apalachicola reservations, which were created along the banks of the Apalachicola River.
