In response to orders from King George III , the leaders of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia met with representatives of the southern Indians (Creek, Cherokee , Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Catawba ) at Augusta, Ga., on 5 Nov. 1763. Present were 25 Indian chiefs and 700 warriors, 3 colonial governors, the lieutenant governor of Virginia, and John Stuart , the superintendent of Indian affairs in the Southern District. After six days of oratory, eating, drinking, and distributing presents from the king, the group signed a "Treaty of Perfect and Perpetual Peace and Friendship." The document provided for the mutual forgiveness of all past offenses and injuries; the establishment of satisfactory trade relations; the punishment, by each party, of offenders of its own race for crimes against members of the other race; and the fixing of boundaries of a reservation of about 15 square miles for the Catawba Indians .
