Description:
This document dated January 1, 1836 is an executive order from an unnamed governor of Georgia (probably William Schley, 1835-1837), prepared by secretary R. A. Greene, that lists a number of acts of the Georgia Assembly that are to be published in several newspapers in the state. The acts listed deal with various topics, including limits on the rights of slaves and free persons of color, changes of superior court schedules in certain counties, amendment of an act passed in December 1829 to protect frontier inhabitants from the Creek Indians, and an act to provide funding for the arrest and prosecution of Cherokee Indians under the jurisdiction of the state.
