This handwritten resolution requests that Governor Hawkins obtain a new map of the Cherokee border (as set by the Treaty of Holston in 1791) from General Pickens, as the previous map was destroyed in a fire. This new map would be filed in the Buncombe County Superior Court and transmitted to each Senator in Congress. The resolution is signed by William Miller, Speaker of the House, and by George Outlaw, President of the State Senate.
The collection consists of a written agreement by the Virginia House of Delegates to settle differences for the boundaries of North Carolina and Virginia on January 10, 1800.
