I can handle this, Chief Ross.
The sheriff looks at his deputies and shakes the notice.
Lynch is eager.
Go on boys, We got the papers.
Elias starts to stop them. John puts his hand out before Elias can move.
Sheriff, I order you to leave Cherokee
owned property. The Georgia Congress
has no power here.
The sheriff laughs. Talmidge and three very big and mean looking warriors stand in the doorway. The sheriff speaks to his deputies.
Go on, do it.
The deputies begin to tear up the newspaper office. Deputy Lynch yelps with glee.
Talmidge and the warriors quickly subdue the deputies. The sheriff starts to pull his gun. John boldly stops him by taking his own gun and cocking it under his chin. He turns him over to the warriors.
Eject them at the border. I warn
you sheriff. If you come back the
penalty is severe.
The sheriff glares at John. Talmidge and the warriors take them away.
Elias turns to John and speaks.
John, The Ridge and I agree it's
time to sign the removal treaty.
It is the only way to stop the
white governments from killing us
