Hon. Guion Miller Washington D.C.

Sir= Relative to your request for a connection of my application #8326 by preparing for more evidence (tonc??ing)?? to this case under which I claim to participate in the fund arising from the Judgement of the Court of Claims in favor of the Eastern Cherokee= therefore I hereby give the statement that my father was one of the Eastern Cherokees and he was enrolled in 1851 under his name as (Cornsilk) in English name and (Na-nu-di) in Indian name and (Na-nu-di (Cornsilk) Thompson) as his full name in English because he ws the brother of (Chas Thompson) either (Oo-cha-la-ta) in Indian name. Who was one of the principal chiefs of the Cherokee Nation and that Na-nu-di or Cornsilk Thompson's mother was (Sor-kini) in Indian name and that she was my grandmother on my father side. And she was resided in the east in 1835 and moved West and my father was resided in the East in 1833.

I stated that my mother was enrolled in 1851 as it was the same person living when the Enrollment was made her name was =Anni. In Indian name Ar?? (Anna) in English name. And she was resided in the East in 1835. And her father was (Jesse Dark) in English name and (Ja-si Oo-le-si-ki) in Indian But probably may be died prior to 1851 and he was my grandfather in the first degree on the side of my mothers. And I believe this statement is true and a copy is made approximately to the copy of the Eastern Cherokees ????ering filed in the Indian Office. And Hope the Commission of the Indian Office Thereof will take the mater up for rearrangement and have consideration toward to a completion. With kinds my and. ????

Respectfully
