Council House, Broken Arrow, Creek Nation, 29 June, 1825.
Resolved by the Chiefs and Warriors in Council assembled that after a
suitable consideration which the nature of the case demands, they
and strictly declare for themselves and for the whole Muscogee Nation,
all of the late General McIntosh's party who have opposed the Laws of
Nation, are hereby pardoned to all intents and purposes, and they are
invited to return to their usual places of abode or elsewhere, and
dwell in the full enjoyment of peace & security and of all their rights
privileges guaranteed to them by our Laws. 
The property which they have with them, & that which is in the Nation
by them when they left it is theirs. Such of their property as may have
lost or destroyed contrary to the known laws of the Nation which once
belonged to General McIntosh & Samuel Hawkins or others shall be
paid for to the proper owners by the Nation whenever it shall appear to
satisfaction of the United States Agent after hearing both parties in
that it was or any part of it taken or destroyed contrary to the Laws
Nation. Either party may appeal from the decision of the Agent to the
Secretary of War, whose decision in the case shall be final.
Some individuals of the pardoned party are justly indebted to the
monies borrowed in different amounts and otherwise, for which the
expect to be paid.But the authorities of the Nation will wait patiently
reasonable time until these debtors can be prepared to reimburse the
Treasury. In every case, at all times these misguided and unfortunate
are required to conform to the Laws of the Nation and to obey and
proper authorities, and conduct themselves as good citizens of the
general talk shall be given in public and observed by the whole Nation,
these people shall be secure in their persons and property. Any person
persons who shall kill any of the pardoned party on any pretence for
offences shall suffer Death. And it is clearly to be understood that
to be in no respect punished or held accountable for the past, but are
future subject to all the restraints of the Law and entitled to the
privileges of good citizens.
Done in Council and subscribed in behalf of the whole Nation.
