|Title:||An address to the whites delivered in the First Presbyterian Church on the 26th of May, 1826 / Elias Boudinot|
|Date:||1826 May 26|
|Description:||This document is a published copy of a speech delivered by Elias Boudinot, Cherokee missionary and future editor of the |Cherokee Phoenix newspaper, in Philadelphia on May 26, 1826 and printed by William F. Geddes. Boudinot's speech was part of a fund-raising tour designed to procure money for the establishment of a printing press in the Cherokee Nation for publishing a national newspaper. In this speech, Boudinot emphasizes the "progress" of the Cherokees by detailing their agricultural and domestic employments and the invention and adoption of the written Cherokee language devised by Sequoyah (also George Guest). Boudinot further highlights the influence Christian missionaries have had in the Cherokee Nation. He urges his audience to distinguish themselves philanthropically by supporting not only the publication of a national newspaper, but also the establishment of a seminary within the Cherokee Nation.
