Messrs. Camak & Hines.-I observed in your last paper a statement of Peter Donaldson, stating that the Commissioners at the late treaty, promised him two thousand dollars-so far as respects myself or is intended to apply to me, I pronounce it to be a willful lie, and as the character of Donaldson is well known, it is unnecessary for me to say any thing more on that subject.

There is a report going the rounds in Jasper, that I contrived to have a reserve laid off on the west side of the Ocmulgee river, in favor of Wm. M’Intosh the Indian Chief, and that I had it run out to suit my own views, and that it takes in the land on the bank of the river opposite my mill; the report goes on to say that I am interested in said reserve, and will be the owner in a short time, or will have my negroes settle on it, the person or persons who invented this falsehood, or those who gave it circulation for the purpose of injuring my reputation, are willful malicious liars, and I can prove it. By inserting this in your next paper, with the certificate of Jonathan Phillips, which goes to prove the falsehood of the report, you will oblige.

I certify that the lower corner of M’Intosh’s reserve on the west side of Ocmulgee river is supposed to be about one quarter of a mile above Gen. Adam’s mill, and does not include the land opposite.
12th September.
