Se-quo-ya--called in English "George Guess," a Cherokee Chief. This man is the CADMUS of the Aboriginal race. It was he who invented the Cherokee Alphabet, and gave to his people the power over a written language. His life, when it appears in the Indian History referred to, will afford material for the Philosopher and the Philologist--and whilst it will demonstrate his claims to the respect of mankind, will excite the general admiration. [P. 6.]
