Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Saturday, July 31, 1830
Vol. III, no. 15
Page 3, col. 5b


I hereby forewarn all persons from harboring and trading with SELAH BLACKWELL, on my account, as she has never been legally my wife. I have sufficient evidence to prove that the said Selah Blackwell is the lawful wife of one Mr. Young. I therefore solemnly protest against any proceedings either in law, or in any other way, against me on her account.

Alexander McDonald.
