Still, settlers fought shy of this land, for the Indians were all about, and they were unpleasant neighbors in those days. The panic of 1837, which Jackson bequeathed to Van Buren, turned the planters from the impoverished lands of Virginia, the Carolinas, and east Georgia, toward the West.

The treaties with these tribes are in a course of execution, and their removal, it is hoped, will be completed in the course of 1832.
