As Secretary of State, Monroe requests information regarding the Yazoo claims for deliberations of the Board of Commissioners which "can only be obtained thro' the Executive of Georgia." In 1785 the legislature of Georgia had granted four land companies most of the territory now making up Alabama and Mississippi. It later emerged that all who voted for the law were bribed, and the land was deemed inalienable. In 1802 Georgia sold these claims to the U.S. government. The Yazoo claimants denied Georgia's right to rescind the sale; in 1814 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld their case and Congress repaid the claimants. (2)" /> JOHNSON, ANDREW, <I>President</I>.
