I was this far determined to proceed to Williamsburgh, to lay before His Excellency some matters which concerned the interest of this Government, & the Frontiers in particular; but finding that my immediate return to Pittsburgh was indispensably necessary, I have dispatched my Servant Express to my Lord, by whom I now write you. As His Lordship in the late treaty with the Indians, acquainted...
I have by the Bearer hereof acquainted His Lordship with the late Murders committed by the Savages upon our Inhabitants in this quarter: and at the same time, have taken the liberty to make a requisition of assistance, & to recommend some Matters to His Lordship’s considration. I shall here take the liberty of speaking to you, well knowing that you must be a competent Judge of measures...
The infinate confusion into which this country ⟨ mutilated ⟩ by our disagreement with the indians, has heretofore put it ou⟨ mutilated ⟩ power to continue a desirable correspondence with you, but a⟨ mutilated ⟩ importance of the Subject urges, and your interest may be par⟨ mutilated ⟩ Servicable; together with the pleasure I feel in maintaining an ⟨ mutilated ⟩ctive intercourse with you, I...

When we...
I am extremely sorry that I am forced to debar myself the pleasure of waiting upon you agreeable to my proposal & wish; but when you consider the Season of the year, & the distance I have before me, I hope I shall stand exculpated in your opinion. I have very luckily succeeded as far as I could well have expected, so that I have the satisfaction to find my Fatigue & trouble hath not been for...
I have lived some time past in the greatest hope of seeing you at this place; but whatsoever might have deterred my happiness in that respect must be attributed to purposes superior to my expectations; tho. if consistent with your happiness nothing inferior to my warmest Wishes. Lord Dunmore hath done us the honour of a visit, I dare not presume to give my opinion touching the Character of so...
Since my return from the Illinois Country, where his Majesty’s business, as well as my own private Affairs had called me, I have had the honor of two Letters from you; I have also had the pleasure of Mr Wood’s company here, & esteem him a very proper person for the accomplishment of your purposes, whose abilities (I conceive) will direct him to the proper choice of Country, when he has once...
Since I had the pleasure of seeing you here, some apparent favourable Circumstances induced Me to re-visit the Western World, & cursorily to feast upon, the various Novelties afforded, in so ample a Speculative Field. In my return from the Illinois I could not refrain from accompanying Majr Hamilton & the other Gentn on a Visit to the great Licks, where the Elephant’s Bones render them more...
