This document begins with a letter from John Ross, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, dated July 2, 1836. Ross denounces the Treaty of New Echota (1835) that was signed by a delegation led by the Ridge Party. Referring to it as "the pretended Treaty", Ross explains that the agreement is not legitimate and claims that it is not supported by the majority of the nation. Ross sets forth reasons against the removal of the Cherokee people to lands west of the Mississippi River and defends himself against various accusations, especially those made by John F. Schermerhorn, a U.S. commissioner. Ross' letter is followed by a memorial of protest, dated June 21, 1836, submitted to the U.S. Congress by a Cherokee delegation led by Ross. The memorial outlines the history of agreements between the U.S. and Cherokees in objection to activities of Georgia against the Cherokee Nation and people. Significant evidence of oppression and mistreatment are offered as evidence of Georgia's overstepping its legitimate authority. The delegation also protests the Treaty of New Echota
