 Another body of emigrating Creeks lately passed Creek Path on their way to the Western country.  They are called Creeks, though we are credibly informed that there were but few full Indians, most of the party being white men, half breeds, and mullattoes (sic).  They divided into two companies at Creek Path.  One company pursued their journey on land, the other went down the Tennessee River in boats.
