and#147;He is wise; he has something to say.and#160; Let us call him and#145;A-tse-nu-sti,and#8217; the messenger.and#8221; This is the story of Reverend Samuel Austin Worcester (1798-1859), and#147;messengerand#8221; and missionary to the Cherokees from 1825 to 1859 under the auspices of the American Board of Foreign Missions (Congregational). One of Worcesterand#8217;s earliest accomplishments was to set Sequoyahand#8217;s alphabet in type so that he and Elias Boudinot could print the bilingual Cherokee Phoenix. After removal to Indian Territory, he helped establish the Cherokee Advocate, edited by William Ross, and issued almanacs, gospels, hymnals, bibles, and other books in the Cherokee, Creek, and Choctaw languages. He served the Cherokee in numerous roles, including those of preacher, teacher, postmaster, legal advisor, doctor, and organizer of temperance societies. His story is the Cherokee story, and in the foreword to this new edition, William L. Anderson discusses Worcesterand#8217;s life among the Cherokee.
